About Me

Hilary Ramsden is a clown performer, activist, teacher and researcher. From being member of the acclaimed lesbian-feminist Siren Theatre Company from 1984-89 to co-founding the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) in 2004 she has pursued a playful, subversive and innovative performance career spanning 35 years which she continues to develop. In 1992 she co-founded Walk & Squawk with Erika Block and moved to Southeastern Michigan. Over 14 years the company created performances, workshops, events, installations and expanded their ideas of theatre into neighbourhoods, streets and fields far beyond the studio.

She performs and teaches internationally, and is a Senior Lecturer in Performance, Theatre & Drama at the University of South Wales.
