EvoL - Emotive Circus Arts

Beth joined Emotive Circus Arts in October 2017 and took the role of choreographer and assistant director. ECA is the first contemporary circus company in the world to use psychological studies to induce emotions from audiences. New to the circus scene, Beth was excited to work with multi-disciplinary elite performers and teach them contemporary dance routines. Working closely with the director, Beth created movement sequences to support the narrative and characters whilst subtly tweaking the circus acts by overseeing the intentions and transitions of tricks. EvoL premiered at the Rondo Theatre, Bath, in January 2018, and sold out every night.

The BBC filmed a video for the company highlighting the benefit the show has on mental health:

Theatre Bath's John Christopher Wood reviewed the show with four stars on opening night:

"The choreography is brilliantly devised, and executed with consummate skill, sometimes in pairs, sometimes solo, sometimes tout ensemble, and achieves a statuesque beauty in its acrobatic moves and daring postures."

"It is a visual feast of choreographic imagination that delights the eye, the ear and the mind. Life-changing? Theatre can only really be life-changing in the moment: but this, uplifting literally as well as figuratively, will certainly heighten your life in its hour."
