Clown character, Teeterboard
Ashley Carr studied theatre and circus arts at The Circus Space and the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. While still a student, he co-founded the Kicking the Moon Company, which won the first annual Jerwood Circus Award in the UK. The Guardian described Kicking the Moon as “a delicious mix of circus and theater.” With funding from Arts Council England, Kicking the Moon’s show went on a multi-year world tour. While performing with Kicking the Moon, Ashley also launched a solo show, Bien Accroché, which he presented in theatres and festivals throughout the world. With his diverse background as a street artist, circus performer and clown, Ashley was invited to join Cirque Éloize’s production of “Rain – Comme une pluie dans tes yeux” in which he performed for several years. Ashley’s other passion in life is flying kites, so don’t be surprised to find him outside with a kite in his hand!
