What do you expect when you see me? Ripe is a surreal exploration of our assumptions towards female performers. Combining trapeze, dance and text, Ripe aims to unpeel stereotypes that we wrap around women’s bodies.
Growing up in London, Tilly spent her childhood singing, dancing and performing, but her love for circus began at an international aerial dance festival where she first discovered she could dance in the air. Tilly completed her degree at Circomedia, specialising in static trapeze and physical theatre. While at Circomedia, Tilly strived to integrate her previous experience with her new found love of trapeze to create unique and exciting aerial work. Since graduating she has worked for Circus Company Cirque Bijou, danced in a site-specific show with Stacked Wonky Dance Theatre, and started developing and performing her solo work.
“Ripe is not only witty and original, it’s thought provoking too”

Please note: contains song with explicit lyrics
How are we able to become if we have yet to be? A labyrinth of the efforts placed in becoming. Only in the act of falling can we see truth.
“It is probably no mere historical accident that the word person, in its first meaning, is a mask. It is rather recognition of the fact that everyone is always and everywhere, more or less consciously, playing a role. … It is in these roles that we know each other; it is in these roles that we know ourselves.” - Robert Ezra Park
