Brett
Head Trainer
Brett first entered circus arts 10 years ago, coming from a theatre background. They immediately fell in love with aerial silks, trapeze, and Spanish web as well as a variety of prop manipulation disciplines. Brett also loves clowning and German wheel and works on them at every opportunity. Their favourite skills to learn are silly ones which are easy to learn and even sillier ones which are very hard to learn.

Evyn
Head Trainer, Aerial Specialist
Nearly ten years ago Evyn was invited to try out hanging from a trapeze, and little did he know this would spark an expansive circus career of hanging from all kinds of things! Evyn quickly fell in love with the aerial arts and attempted all he could find; he also quickly found a passion for working with partners in doubles routines, as the challenge and enjoyment of working with another person thrills him. His favourite aerial arts are the trapeze, silks and chinese pole. When you can find him on the ground, you'll likely find Evyn performing adagio or tumbling. Evyn has been both student and teacher at Warehouse Circus during his circus career and has even left ACT for periods to live internationally and seek opportunities to train and learn new skills to bring back and teach his students.
