Tayo Wilson

Circus was just the natural progression for a boy with a physical appetite and a need for excitement. Tayo graduated from NICA in 2008, where he focused intensively on straps and flying trapeze, and performed both skills in the NICA show Rhapsody. Since then, he has worked with High Flying Circus Arts teaching flying trapeze to the public.

In 2012, Tayo and two other NICA graduates Emma Shepherd, and Jess Niven performed in The Exhibitionists, an international ensemble of emerging circus artists who presented outdoor circus installations as part of the cultural program of the Olympic Games.

Currently, Tayo is one of seven NICA graduates cast as part of the ‘Kings Men’ in the Global Creatures production of King Kong the Musical.
