Ellie Dubois is an award winning performance maker based in Tayvallich on the West Coast of Scotland. She trained on the Contemporary Performance Practice course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and at the National Centre for Circus Arts. Her work includes:

Ringside, A circus show made for one audience member at a time. Ringside was a critical success and won the Autopsy award for experimental performances from The Arches and Summerhall and was nominated for a Total Theatre Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015. Ringside has toured to The Roundhouse, Platform, York Theatre Royal, Summerhall, The Arches, The Lowry Manchester. Press includes:

‘This is one of those “artesian well” pieces: the more you reflect on it, the more it delves deeper into the realms of female empowerment, vulnerability, intimacy and control’ 
- 4 Stars, Mary Brennan, The Herald
‘Impeccable’ 4 Stars, Matt Truman, Fest Magazine
‘Delicate yet robust, Ringside manages to hold a lot within its brief ten minutes. It’s also an intriguing subversion of form, innovating contemporary circus – known for its large-scale tricks and displays of virtuosity – in an unlikely direction.’ 
4 stars, Catherine Love, Exeunt

In 2017 she will premier No Show at Platform supported by Creative Scotland, a new circus show for anyone who has tried, failed and failed better. No Show will preview at Platform and will be at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 supported by The Roundhouse.

She is an associate artist at Platform, recently received at Jerwood Foundation Performing Arts Micro Bursary and is a board member for Articulation.
