Join us at the Millennium Gallery as Circus expert Professor Vanessa Toumlin hosts a conversation with aerialist Rebecca Truman about her memoir Aerialist: the colourful life of a trapeze artist.

Published to coincide with the 250th anniversary of circus, Aerialist tracks Rebecca’s fascinating journey of becoming a trapeze artist and creating her acclaimed all-women’s circus company, Skinning the Cat.

In this illustrated conversation Rebecca will discuss circus lifestyle, the physical training from childhood to become a top performer, the creative process of making trapeze routines, extraordinary costumes, and the effect that two serious falls had on her life.
