From a childhood history of designing costumes and “pratting about onstage” (7:05), Rebecca Truman began Skinning the Cat, one of the UK’s first contemporary circus companies. In this interview, Becky talks about her creation methodology (16:02), mental health issues (35:37), writing her biography and publishing the book, Aerialist (48:02) , the current state of circus as an artform (54:23), and of course, answering the age old question- “what advice would you give to yourself, at the beginning of your career.” (62:50)
