My name is Chloe Mantripp and I'm a circus performer who works in the realms of theatre and comedy. I trained at Circomedia for three years – finishing with a first class degree in contemporary circus and physical theatre. Since then I have been on tour for over a year with the delightful show Hetty Feather, but have now settled back into writing and performing my own curious brand of dark humour, moonlighting as a pie delivery driver to fund the habit.
And now I've writen a show exploring my experiences:
The show is a 45 minute One Woman stand up and explorative circus performance discussing life as a pie delivery driver. (Partly performed on free-standing rotating hoop) Stand-up comedy meets performance art via the circus ..and the M6 diversion.
Ive had a freestanding hoop fabricated for the project, and am now seeking money in order to pay my guarantee to C Venues at Edinburgh Festival, to publicise it successfuly and to get there!
I will be performing at the C South Main Theatre from the 3rd of August to the 28th, 6 days a week.
Please help me make this dream a reality!
