Circus Theatre Company. Taking stories into the air, into theatres and into the outdoors.
Founded by Bryony Livesey and Edd Casey in 2014, Hikapee create narrative driven work that tell stories of the world we live in for the small and tall.
Previous work has toured to theatre spaces, outdoor festivals, village halls & schools.
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.
