Jono Ayres (Bristol)

Originally trained in Physical Theatre and receiving a BA (Hons) Degree from the University of Leeds, Jono has since been training and teaching circus for nearly a decade. Starting out working in the United States after completing his Masters Degree, he travelled and trained across America, Canada and Australia before settling back in England. While specialising in Static Trapeze, Doubles Trapeze and Flying Trapeze, he happily teaches almost all aerial acts

Jono currently lives in Bristol, working for Circomedia Centre for Contemporary Circus and Physical Theatre. In addition to running the Youth Circus programme, and numerous evening classes, Jono is a regular guest teacher on the Academic courses for both FDA and BA. He will be returning to Glastonbury this year to perform Flying Trapeze in the incredible Circus field ‘Big Top’. His latest project started 7 months ago when he took a weekend off to have a baby, who has since already been inducted into the circus world.
