Benjamin's journey as a performing artist has been long and varied. It's never been about the specific art or discipline, but always the role a performer plays in the minds and hearts of their audience. Classically trained as a double-bassist, Benjamin fell in love with all manner of circus arts at an early age, and has spent many years applying the dedication and virtuosity of a classical musician to all aspects of his art. "Good enough" never is, and Benjamin showcases a passion for crafting superb displays of skill. From juggling to fire performance to aerial dance, he focuses on artistic displays of technical prowess.
And at the end of the day, isn't this what's important? What you look for in your entertainment? You laugh, you smile, you leave a happier person than before; with stories to tell and memories to hold.
What to Expect
