In conversation with Professor Vanessa Toulmin
Published to coincide with the 250th anniversary of circus, Aerialist tracks Rebecca’s fascinating journey of becoming a trapeze artist and creating her acclaimed all women’s circus company, Skinning the Cat. In this illustrated conversation she discusses circus lifestyle, the physical training from childhood to become a top performer, the creative process of making trapeze routines, extraordinary costumes and the effect that two serious falls had on her life.
