Circus - Performance and Direction


While much of Neill’s earliest work (Los Trios Ringbarkus)  had its roots in clowning and vaudeville, Neill has also performed and directed with Circus Oz, touring to Venezuela, Bogota and Australia’s national touring circuit.


In 2000 Neill was invited by the Werld Kinder Festival, to direct the Circus of a Thousand Faces, a unique theatre circus piece created in the Netherlands involving young performers from Brazil, Burkina Faso, India, China and Ghana.  The work toured Europe and the UK in the summer of that year. It involved 35 performers and rehearsals were conducted in seven languages and dialects.


Aspects of Neill’s work could be described as Circus Theatre or Physical Theatre, using many of the techniques of the circus in a narrative theatrical context. These works can be found in the     Theatre section of this site. Please see  Verona, LuluRed Dog., Australian Outback Spectacular


Neill has worked as a Guest Director and Teacher at the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne from 2003 to 2005.
