Nine Minutes in Four Days

This was a collaborative workshop with Jorge Crecis looking at different ways of combining our work, and learning about each other’s methodologies. The sixteen participants gained insight into both our approaches to training and creativity, and left with a variety of useful tools they can use to continue their own explorations combining dance, choreography and acrobatics beyond the end of the workshop.

Square Peg Contemporary Circus

Square Peg grew from a diverse and committed group of Tim’s students in 2009. Under his direction they went on to perform their epic and beautiful shows at theatres and festivals all around the UK for five years. The company combined highly skilled circus with theatre and dance to create beautiful, innovative adaptations of classic stories. This video show some footage from the first week of their rehearsals for Rime an award winning adaptation of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

People’s thoughts on training with me

When I first met Tim I could do a forward roll and that was about it. Within a year of working with him twice a week I was walking on my hands, throwing and catching people, becoming a base for acro-balance, and ultimately leading to basing a 3 high human tower. The moment I did my first hand spring, aged 31, is a moment I will remember my whole life.

Tim is a kind, methodical and knowledgable coach. He has experienced so much in his life of circus performing and directing and brings it all to you when you work together.

I reached out to Tim for private lessons at home for my first forays on my handstand canes – I wanted someone big and strong, who I could trust to save me if I were to fall, and Tim fit the bill but he had lots more to offer!

For example, he saw that I was fearful of my canes, so had me practice basic technique on blocks, a good intermediate step between floor and canes. I had a slight niggle on my right wrist, and he taught me how to tilt my handstand blocks so they sloped downwards, lessening the pressure on the wrists! Genius.
He taught me ways to frame my handstand journey to look for small wins so that I’d be less affected by drawbacks and plateaus, lessening my handstand neuroticism.
Tim is really patient and encouraging, friendly and fair

This workshop was the opportunity of learning and mixing acrobatic skills with dance in a very personal way through body sensations and the concept of being fully present in the moment. It gave me the chance of working on achieving new goals every day and finding strategies to push myself always beyond my limits recognizing failure as a part of the journey and doing everything with no regrets.
