Autumn at the Eden Project

Corporate event for BT

Katie recently travelled to the Eden Project in Cornwall for three different events, where Swamp Circus provided circus artists to entertain guests in the unique corporate party setting. Swamp Circus has three stilt trees which lurk in the shadows and blend with the foliage, surprising guests when they move as they blend with the surroundings so well.

Katie’s performance is much less subtle, performing up to 10m high, rigged from the biome arches. She takes on different characters and costumes depending on the theme or style of the event, and even dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for the leaving party of Executive Director Gaynor Coley, who has now moved to Kew Gardens.

Katie usually performs an ambient set as guests arrive, followed by a feature act either before or after speeches or dinner. For the Wizard of Oz theme, this was to a medley of the film’s soundtrack.
