The Circus Hub has a very hardworking voluntary board behind the scenes working to ensure the trust is meeting its aims and achieving what it should be! Meet our board members.
Kathrine Biggs joined the Board in 2014. She stumbled upon the Women’s Circus in Newtown (Wellington) about 13 years ago. Since then she has seen the growth of circus in Wellington thanks to many dedicated people. While being physically unsuited to virtually everything circus she has had fun and provided motivation to her fellow students as they outstrip her skill level in a short time! She has a strong interest in the development of New Zealand flavoured physical theatre and circus.Her day job is Programme Manager with the NZ Aid Programme. She also sings, at which she has more aptitude than circusing…
