Born in Brisvegas in 1972, Lil was a compulsive show-off from a young age [so her Mum says]. With a background in Rhythmic Gymnastics, dance, contact impro and capoiera, she says she didn't settle until she discovered the circus community. Skills-wise, Lil will have a go at anything, but prefers to “stick to the ground”. She has a particular passion for adagio (duo balancing) and is a plum ace whip-cracker. Lil says she is generally “into anything that lets her dress up” in the fabulous costumes she is noted for. Being a dab hand on the sewing machine, Lil designs and makes her own costumes. Lil has performed with Vulcana Women’s Circus and is now a member of the immensely successful Happy Sideshow, which has been touring festivals in Australia and Europe for the last three years. Lil recently uncovered a photograph of her great great great grandfather who travelled to Australia at the age of 6 as part of a circus trapeze troupe.
