Jarrod is an Australian-raised, Montreal-based, free-range circus artist. With a special passion for creating work through an interdisciplinary lens, he fuses physical theatre with movement and acrobatics to create a visceral new hybrid of contemporary circus.
Jarrod cut his teeth at age six, joining Australia's national youth circus 'The Flying Fruit Fly Circus and embarking on a a decade of training, performing, and touring. He later honed his craft at l’École Nationale de Cirque de Montreal (2019) completed four years of higher education in Circus Arts (sweating upside down in 'the handstand corner' under the benevolently meticulous supervision of his Russian coach). He has since worked with some of the leading contemporary circus and performance companies internationally. Outside of his artistic pursuits, Jarrod spends the the remainder of his time and energy in search of adequate coffee and avoiding the type of people who stand directly in front of the baggage train at airports.
