Biography

Ben is a versatile circus artist specialising in partner acrobatics. Growing up in Scotland, Ben was originally on a different life path and received two master’s degrees before he started training circus. At 25 he left the normal world behind and joined the circus. He’s educated at Flic Scuola di Circo in Turin and at the School of Circus and Dance (DOCH) in Stockholm.

Ben is closely connected with Cirkus Cirkör, performing at events, teaching circus at our pedagogical department and training the students at the upper secondary school. He’s also performed with Kompani Giraff and has his own company, Analogue Acrobatics, together with Elisabeth Künkele.
