Brainfools Circus Scratch Night #3

11 May 2024


Spoken Word Edition

Brainfools is back at Jacksons Lane with a series of three scratch nights, where circus artists showcase works-in-progress to curious and adventurous audiences.  

These nights provide a rare opportunity for performers to test new material, receive live feedback, and refine their pieces based on audience reactions. It’s a dynamic exchange between artists and spectators, fostering a collaborative and interactive atmosphere. Each themed night will feature six performers, unveiling a diverse range of talent and ideas.

The third and final Brainfools edition at Jacksons Lane is spoken word, featuring experimental circus and incorporates spoken word.

The line up for the The Spoken Word Edition (May 11) includes:

Nuria Navas:
Nuria decided to join the circus at the age of 41 because why not! She specialises in aerial, performing in cabarets, private events, and festivals. She is also interested in creating work that communicates ideas and challenges some of our culture’s preconceptions around different subjects.

Sierra Callaghan:
Sierra is a trained singer, dancer, acrobat, martial artist and a fledgling violinist. Originally from Canada, her home base is now London, UK, where she continues to take the stage at comedy clubs and open mics on every chance she gets.

Myles Macdonald:
Myles is a graduate of National Centre for Circus Arts and is a fantastic juggler who’s worked with the likes of Kook Ensemble and Brainfools.

Sarah Flinton:
Sarah is an international actor and circus artist originally from Yorkshire. She made her West End debut in ‘Cirque Berserk’ at the Garrick Theatre and recently performed in ‘Rent’ at the Phoenix Arts Club. With nearly a decade in the industry, Sarah is proud and grateful to still be doing what she loves everyday.

Joe Edwards:
Joe is a multi-disciplinary sound designer and composer who draws inspiration from film music in the way he chooses to build a direct link between visual art and sound. Using music as a reflection of what’s on stage, he creates a symbiotic relationship that binds the performance together, delivering a unified body of art for audiences.

Eduardo Martinez Larunce:
Eduardo is a talented graduate from the National Centre for Circus Arts who will be showcasing his extraordinary handstand skills.

Tomy Brio Roj:
