Deb Batton is a very experienced circus director, working with Tumble Circus, NICA, Circus Oz, The Women’s Circus, among others, and she was Artistic Director of Legs on the Wall.
She is currently touring as a performer with A Good Catch in the award-winning show, Casting Off. She delivers exceptional workshop experiences for participants at all levels of performance and devising skills.
Participants can choose to just attend this masterclass, or also sign up to circus lab over 8 weeks that will support emerging and professional performers to respond to the provocations of consumption and waste, based around found objects, rejected white goods, obsolete technology, and more.
The Circus Lab will develop these incentives into a range of new short works for audiences

Here at Vulcana Women’s Circus, we run workshops for adults and kids and teens, and we develop community projects with all kinds of different communities, the focus always being on creativity and empowerment through circus. You can book us for gigs, workshops or hire our space at the Stores Studio, Brisbane Powerhouse.
Vulcana’s circus workshop and performance projects engage a broad range of community participants and work in partnership with arts and community organisations to create opportunities for cultural expression and community development. In a safe, playful space we encourage participants to be themselves with joy and push the boundaries of what is achievable as one or in a group.
