About Head Over Wheels
Head Over Wheels is a disabled and non-disabled multidisciplinary company that combines aerial performance, music and theatre to create shows that push the boundaries of circus.

They strive for access within the arts, centering their work on inclusive design and focusing on access as a creative tool, rather than an additional afterthought. They challenge the expectations of what a ‘circus body’ should look like. Their aim is to subvert the trends of glamorous and sensational circus, creating domestic and relatable work that resonates with audiences on a personal level.
