We are Hands Down Circus. We first crossed paths in 2016 during an FDA in Contemporary Circus and Physical Theatre at Circomedia, Bristol - where Graham was an ex-engineer, ready and raring to specialise in diabolo, and mathematician Carys had her eyes firmly set on the trapeze. It was there that we teamed up, leaned in to fate and began tackling the world of creating and performing together, without a single diabolo or trapeze in sight.

This journey took us to London where we graduated with a BA Hons from the prestigious National Centre for Circus Arts and have since performed all around the UK and Ireland, picking up new skills, expanding our creative potential, and developing a strange affinity for coloured duct tape. 


We are so proud to be supported by:
