Lauren Breunig fell in love with circus while working as a counselor at Circus Smirkus summer camp. That love drew her to study with social circus organization El Circo del Mundo in Santiago, Chile during a semester abroad in college. She was so inspired by the transformation and empowerment she witnessed in the students there that she decided to pursue circus herself. After college, she landed in her hometown of Brattleboro, VT and began taking classes at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA), first as a recreational student and then as part of NECCA’s Professional Training Program. At NECCA, she was trained by world-class coaches from Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, Ringling Brothers, and Pilobolus. She is the pioneer of an original apparatus, the Sliding Trapeze, and has been featured on as an innovative aerialist in festivals across the United States including the Aerial Acrobatics Arts Festival of Denver, the US Aerial Championships, and VivaFest. Now working as a freelance artist, she has performed with companies including the Christopher Reeve Foundation, the Boston Circus Guild, and Nimble Arts, delighting audiences large and small with performances on the Sliding Trapeze as well as aerial sling, static trapeze, solo and duo fabric, and partner acrobatics. A versatile and engaging instructor, she teaches circus arts to students of all ages at studios, schools, camps, and festivals around the US and abroad, and she also leads Nimble Arts Teacher Training courses.
A veteran of the stage as a singer, Lauren has toured and recorded in the US and internationally with a variety of folk music groups including Northern Harmony, the Renewal Chorus, and her band, Windborne. In 2014, Windborne toured with the prestigious American Music Abroad program, sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Cultural and Educational Affairs. Acting as cultural diplomats, they traveled to Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Angola, giving workshops, presentations, and concerts.
While in Madison, Lauren will be playing a house concert with Windborne.Info: http://www.
