Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil Puppeteer, Artist-Coach for Puppetry, Na’vi of the Omatikaya clan, Shaman back-up


July 2015 - June 2019


I was engaged to work in ‘Toruk: The First Flight’ by Cirque du Soleil in July 2015, joining the project from the start of Creation as a puppeteer. Throughout my four years on the show, my role evolved to encompass becoming Puppetry Captain and later the Artist Coach for Puppetry, aerialist (harness and corde lisse), and character actor (as primary back-up to the lead role of The Shaman).
