Sydney born and raised, Willy has been living in Britain for the last two years training his aerial technique at The National Centre for Circus Arts and Aircraft Circus. He is a graduate of the first ever professional circus course run by Gravity Circus Centre (all in London). He has so far performed at Gravity Circus Centre’s birthday party (2014), Jackson’s Lane Theatre cabaret (2014), the Wig Party charity Halloween Ball for Café de Paris (2013), the International Youth Arts Festival in Kingston (2013), BITES: Remix at The Albany theatre in London (2014) and for corporate events with Nat Harris Entertainment in Australia. He has returned to Australia with a dream of sharing the aerial technique he has learned, and specifically hopes to increase the awareness and appreciation of corde lisse – an underrepresented medium in Australian circus.


Vertical Rope

rope wm

Willy has worked on mastering suspension and strength moves on Chord isle (Rope). He brings a masculine energy to the rope, combining the power and strength with theatre. The piece takes us through the actions of a creature that is misunderstood. Humans fear animals that they don’t understand but what many don’t realise is that the animal also fears and reacts to its fear. Willy wanted to develop the character of the beast that might be dangerous but still has a heart. His aim has been to create a piece that is both topical and engaging, without sacrificing the skills or losing sight of the emotions driving the piece.
This act can be tailored to suit your event as per requested costuming and music to fit your theme.


Duo Vertical Rope

new duo wm

Willy and Will have been working on their doubles technique for the last eight months, exploring aerial choreography and developing brand new, never-seen-before moves on the corde lisse. They are particularly inspired by dynamic hand-to-hand movement, often seen on the trapeze but rarely on an apparatus rigged to a single point, and in circus possibilities on the tensioned-off rope (this is where one performer uses their own weight to create a makeshift pole out of the rope above). They thought that the fine balance and timing involved in a doubles act perfectly reflected the effort required to maintain equilibrium for a loving relationship. They wanted to put together a ragged image of a male-to-male relationship, stripped down and exposed, and felt the starkness and seeming simplicity of the vertical rope to be the perfect canvas. The issues faced in doubles work provide a parallel to those faced in the journey of a relationship. Trust, passion and perhaps above all else risk, the risk of putting your fate in someone else’s hands – these are qualities required for both endeavours.
