Company Director: Lu ffrench
She comes from a theatrical background and has had a passion for performance since the age of five when she played a role in her first stage production. She remained actively involved in theatre throughout her school life , attended a Steiner school which had an emphasis on creative ARTS and went on to study Performing Arts at Cirencester College.
Her ambition and a desire to expand her skills led her to complete Circomedia Bristol – Contemporary Circus and Physical Performance course where she specialised in Aerial and Physical Theatre. Lu started her circus career in 2005 touring with Beechmans Circus. Since then she has performed all over the world on tours, stage productions, corporate shows, festivals, events, weddings, clubs, launches and trade openings.
Through specialised training she has continued to expand her skills in aerial and other performance to include the following; comedy and clowning, bungee and harness work, movement, acrobatics, stage combat, equilibristics and manipulation, shadow puppetry and imagery, physical theatre and performance, contact/contemporary dance, ballet and singing.
Alongside her passion for performance Lu also has a keen interest in the creation of theatrical acts and shows and in 2008 she founded the company `Cirq Delight.’
