Founded by Bryony Livesey and Edd Casey in 2014, Hikapee explores the relationship between circus and theatre to create imaginative narrative-based performances for families. With both indoor and outdoor performances, Hikapee create accessible productions for audiences in a range of locations.
Bryony has been professionally performing as an actor and circus performer for a number of years, working with companies including Circus Suburbia, Open Book Theatre Company, AirCraft Circus, Theatre Delicatessen and Secret Cinema. As well as performing, Bryony has great experience in running workshops and classes for adults and children.
In 2012 Bryony graduated from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance with a BA (Hons) in American Theatre Arts. Prior to this she attended The Brit School where she studied Musical Theatre.
When she's not rehearsing, training or performing, Bryony can be found wearing something floral, cooking up a delicious feast or trying to warm up her forever freezing toes.
Outside of Hikapee's work, Edd has performed with NoFit State Circus, touring internationally with their show, Bianco. The last few years have seen him perform as an actor and circus performer in the UK and abroad, working on shows with various companies. This includes co-founding, and performing with, the absurd, comedic theatre company, The Same, But Different.
Edd graduated with a BA (Hons) in European Theatre Arts from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance and this has hugely influenced his performance style and practice.
Among friends Edd is known for his love of Weetabix, being prepared for anything in a true Scout like fashion and his notorious dead-pan panda face.
