On the cusp of stepping into a career in nursing, Jessica happened upon Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) website and all her carefully laid career plans unravelled.
Over the next year she took classes at the West Australian Circus School and performed a variety of character roles for Lottery West, The Melbourne Cup, Fremantle Festival and the Circus School. By the end of the year, Jessica had formed an adagio trio with two other women, which won best performance at PICA’s Putting on an Act Festival.
Three years later, Jessica graduated with a Bachelor of Circus Arts from NICA (2007), specialising in clown and flying trapeze.
More recently, mentored by outstanding artists Chloé Farah and Kalina Suter, Jessica began her ascent on to dance trapeze.
Also, a graduate of the National Institute of Circus Arts (2005,) Adam has been performing as an acrobat across multiple disciplines, for the past 15 years, employed by a wide range of companies around the world, including Cirque du Soleil (ZED and Amaluna), Circa, The Great Moscow Circus, King Kong, P&O Cruises, and many more.
Adam is also a qualified rigger and a stuntman.
Adam and Jessica have been happily married since 2005 and have a beautiful son who's excited to follow in his parents footsteps.
After finishing up a tour in Europe at the end of 2016, Adam and Jessica returned to Melbourne, with the aim of creating shows together.
Two of these shows are currently under development, stay tuned for more...
