Snatch Circus is a two-woman punk circus from Belfast, performed by award-winning artists Angelique Reckless Ross and Mish Mash Thoburn. Deadly, dirty and dangerous. Snatch is a circus celebration of the fierce and wild.
Angelique grew up performing and teaching in community circuses throughout rural Western Australia. She's lived in caravans and big tops touring internationally with shows such as NoFit State's Bianco. Now based in Belfast, when she’s not being stood on and thrown about by Tumble Circus she can be found touring her award-winning solo show SPIT. Angelique is known for making bold and evocative circus and is a two-time Australian axe-throwing champion.
Michelle aka Mish Mash grew up in Carrickfergus and became proficient in acrobatics by running from the cops during the weekly riots. Currently finishing a masters in Ecological Management and Conservation Biology, she has a goal of combining ecological activism and performance. She has created and toured her own Irish company, Woven Circus Collective, and uses performance to bring awareness to issues and leave the audience questioning their own actions, the actions of others and the ‘status quo’.
