Jess Abouzeid

Circus artist, performer and tutor.

About

Jess quickly realised that her love of performing and being upside down was a perfect match for circus. With the career goal of being ‘professionally awesome’ she enrolled on Greentop’s full time Circus In Performing Arts course and has been unstoppable ever since.

Now an artist and tutor, Jess specialises in aerial acrobatics across multiple apparatus such as silks and hoop. She also likes to sew costumes, play with fire, and pretend to be a gymnast. From glamorous corporate events to comedy characters, she performs all over the country but is rarely found with two feet on the ground.

Available for bookings both nationally and internationally. Please use the contact form provided.

For something a little more twisted, try The Brides Of Dracula Doubles Hoop characters. Want to see some high flying silks in a massive tent? This ones for you.  Finally, if you have no idea what web spin is (nothing to do with spiders!) you can see an example of Jess rehearsing here or see a short clip from the show.
