“Latonya Wigginton, notably performed an affecting piece that was far more than tricks.”

– Tamara Searle, Dance Informa, 2017

About

headshotsLatonya fell in love with the circus at the age of 12 and has been chasing her big-top goals ever since. She started at Flipside Circus in Brisbane, which gave her a solid grounding as an emerging circus artist. At 17 she moved to China and spent one year studying at the Beijing acrobatic school and another year working as a freelance performer. She returned home with a solid understanding of burlesque and the ability to speak Mandarin.

Latonya believes strongly in the power of social circus and so in 2014 spent three months working with SeaChange Arts in Great Yarmouth, UK. There she taught circus lessons to youth at risk and was part of community outreach programs. This connection also lead to the opportunity to perform in a self-directed ensemble show at L’Odyssée du Cirque festival in France.

She is a diverse acrobat with extensive experience both as a solo performer and as an ensemble member. She loves breaking gender stereotypes as a female base and last year based her first three-high pyramid. In 2017 she graduated from the National Institute of Circus Arts and in 2018  finished a Bachelor of Business.

She is the founder of Melbourne feminist circus collective Tons of Sense who are premiering their first immersive show in February 2018.

I’m always keen to hear about artistic collaborations – particularly those that cross out of the realm of circus.
