Holiday Facilitators: Deborah Sanderson

skill, experience, warmth


Deborah has worked has a professional actor, director, and aerialist for more than 20 years. She has performed in both traditional and contemporary circus from Bosnia to the Caribbean.  She runs an aerial theatre company, Urban Angels Circus. ( She is passionate about outdoor theatre, trapeze and other aerial skills.

To develop the esoteric as opposed to the increasing demands of the corporate sector coupled with a desire to create her own work which combines theatricality and aerial skills lead to the formation of Urban Angels in 2010 which combines concept, theme or narrative with physically challenging work in the air. This work is interested in "What makes people tick". She also does a great deal of community & educational work through this new organisation.

Deborah is focusing on collaborating with other artists and creating work (whether in scale, it is intimate or epic) that relates to the space for which it is created. She used the opportunity to study at Masters level to create solo site specific pieces “Wing & a Prayer” and “Mariner’s Journey” and a research project supported by the Arts & Humanities Research Council to look at performer / festival goer relationships at contemporary music festivals in Europe. She also provides rigging advice and tuition to other companies such as Phoenix Dance Theatre’s aerial dance piece “Melt”
