Up, up and running away... with the Circus!
'Fulcrum Circus are international performers Simon Scotting and Miley Rose, two multi-skilled performers from very contrasting backgrounds.
Simon discovered circus in 2002 during his studies at The University of Sheffield and quickly became mesmerised by fire manipulation. He started performing professionally as part of Sheffield-based troupe 'Fyrotechniks', specialising in group fire and LED shows. In 2008 he started working for Swamp Circus, performing and teaching static trapeze and acrobalance, and soon progressed to training full time at Greentop Circus, moving into 'hand to hand' balance and aerial straps. In 2012 Simon met his partner Miley and they now perform full time as a multi-disciplinary duo, specialising in aerial and adagio performances.
Miley is a professional dancer who has performed all over the UK, including the West End and abroad. Having learned gymnastics and acrobatics as a child, it wasn't until she met Simon that she fell in love with circus performance. She soon realised her dance training, flexibility and performance skills gave her a perfect background to learn aerial skills and she now specialises as an aerialist, acrobatic flyer and contortionist.
Together Simon and Miley have performed all across the globe; from busking in Japan and festivals in Singapore, to entertaining hotel guests across Europe and cruise passengers in Scandinavia, to pantomines and corporate shows in the UK. The pair have spent the 2016 summer season under the big top touring the UK with their latest acts and will now be returning to Oslo to finish the year onboard M/S Color Magic entertaining guests sailing between Norway and Germany.
Simon and Miley will be back performing in the UK as a duo from January with new and exciting acts for 2017.
