Jonathan is probably best known as the original founding
member of the National Centre for Circus Arts in London,
formerly known as 'The Circus Space'.
Appearing at the legendary Billy Smarts, Bertram Mills &
Fossett Brother's circuses, he then pursued a career as an
actor. His work has since spanned nearly 40 years;
performing, writing, directing, designing, staging and
producing numerous one-off events and shows, including Film,
Television, Video,' Rock and Roll ' and main house Opera,
Theatre, & Dance, where he specialised as a rigger and
wireman of flying effects.

Jonathan was instrumental in the design & build for Belfast Community Circus; the
refurbishment of The Gin Still at Three Mills Studios and designing and equipping a 4.5
ton aerial truss grid at Circomedia's new premises in Bristol. In between times he has
rigged for companies and productions across the UK & Europe.
Previously working with High Performance in the critically acclaimed flying scene for Billy
Elliot the Musical and continuing Research & Development for circus, Jonathan will no
doubt soon be referred to as an 'Elder Statesman' of Circus'!
