The Team

Tour Co-ordinator;

Abi Cooper, 29, UK

Abi has a longstanding relationship with PWB having started out as a volunteer in 2013 with the India tour, then tour co-ordinating in 2014 and most recently researching this pilot project in Kenya.  She is an energy mountain and knows how to get things moving!  She is a professional performer touring with UK circus Chaplins as an aerialist, Hula Hooper and very often a clown!

Volunteers;

Katie Alexander, 24, UK

Katie was on our first Sierra Leone project a couple of years back and is back for more sharing, teaching and performing.  Having trained at Circomedia Katie is a specialist in dance and physical theatre.  She is passionate about engaging the young and vulnerable with her range of funky skills from unicycling to theatre and dance to acrobalance.

Andrei Cococeanu, 26, Romania/UK

Coco is a clown. Coco is also a juggler.  Coco know hows to make the ordinary into something special! He believes that living is performing and the other way round.  He is well experienced in circus work and theatre shows, and is open hearted to new learning through life experiences.  After working on the India 2014 project he is ready for more playful sharing in Kenya.

Jo Dickinson, 28, UK

Joe will be joining PWB for the first time in 2016.  He is a multi-skilled performer specialising in acrobatics, poi and prop manipulation over the last 7 years.  He spent the summer of 2015 working with Circus Pazaz performing and giving circus workshops to children around the UK and has since decided that he likes performing and teaching more than tree surgery, which is good news for PWB!

Lillian Myers, 28, USA

Returning from the India 2015 tour and ready for more sharing and playing, Lillian is a power house of a performer and educator! With a background in visual art, clown and buddhism her varied skills make for an absolute treat for the Kenyan children.  Imagine giant paintings, silly dancing and wonderful language translation in storytelling! The skies are ready for Lilian’s feet back over this way from the states!
