What is your role in the Electric Rodeo Circus?
Prop & Set designer and builder, creator of all things practical and beautiful.
Which influences have inspired your work in the show?
I draw my inspiration for my creations from the wonderful world of Steampunk and the Victorian era. Fusing new with old and bringing elegance and beauty to materials and ideals long forgotten.
What's been the biggest challenge for you so far in this project?
The challenges have been huge for this show. Taking so many creative people and trying to finalise so many visions into a tangible set has been difficult but rewarding. The ever changing development of the show has meant many changes and a lot of problem solving but it has been great fun at every step.
What do you find most exciting about this show?
The technology, art, costumes and performances all forming into a very unique experience. This is totally new and ground breaking for the burlesque and circus audiences. Something so original creates a sense of wonder at every level.
