Tarah Carey

With a strong history in acrobatics, Tarah competed gymnastics and tumbling at a state level, until Theatre Residency Week with QLD Theatre Co redirected her passions towards a career in the performing arts. She then went on to study a bachelor of acting at USQ after successfully auditioning in 2005. During her final year, she was cast in her first feature film Girl Clock, playing the daughter of Queenie Van De Zandt along side Veronica Neave and Jamie Dunn. In the same year she received a nomination for Best Actress in the Queensland New Filmmakers Awards for her role in The Last Breath. 

The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA)

After graduating Tarah trained with Vulcana Women's Circus for three years before relocating to Melbourne in 2011. Since moving to Melbourne Tarah co-founded the award winning circus-theatre company Gravity Dolls and has performed across theatre, TV and circus with recent credits including shows at La Mama and Red Bennies, Neighbours, Asia Cup Opening Ceremony, Elly Lukas Crown Casino Event, Docklands Winter Wonderland Circus and the Lighting of the Christmas tree for the City of Melbourne. In 2016 Tarah was one of eight, Australian circus artists selected for the Circus Oz Strong Women’s Project.
