First Gig with Circus Oz: Melbourne 2017
Dylan's Talents include: Tumbling, trapeze, handstands, juggling
Dylan’s life has always been around circus. His mother introduced him to circus at a young age as she was a performer with the Flying Fruit Fly Circus in Albury, before moving on to perform with Circus Oz amongst other companies. Ever since Dylan was born he has been traveling with the circus, learning different skills from tumbling, handstands, juggling, and so many others. Since he was a young lad, Dylan has trained alongside his Mum, as well as doing gymnastics. He has performed with his Mum numerous times and has been a street performer, busking all over the country.
Dylan was a participant of the Circus Oz BLAKflip Masterclass progam in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and was a cast member of the Green Room award-winning BLAKflip production, Chasing Smoke that was performed as part of the Yirramboi Festival in 2017. Since then he has performed Indigenous dances for the rugby World Cup as well as performed for the Melbourne Awards. Dylan has worked as a Circus Oz Trainer teaching young children and adults a variety of circus skills. He is the lead trainer on the Koori Youth Circus, which Circus Oz runs in partnership with Melbourne Aboriginal Youth Sports and Recreation Cooperative. Joining the Circus Oz ensemble in 2018, Dylan becomes the first ever second generation performer with the company.
