About the tutors (they are incredible!!)

Toni and Asvin have worked as performers, directors, creators and teachers for the last 15 years. Both have toured internationally and worked with companies such as: Escola Circ Rogelio Rivel, Barcelona; Codarts, Rotterdam; Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia; amongst many others.

Keen to explore the resources that allow other possibilities on the aerial equipment, exploring dance, the air and working from the floor. Their work explores the interrelationship of physical preparation, technique, alignment, dynamics, silences, tricks, and movement and how these impact the creative process and increase expression.
