Cecilia Martin

Cecilia Martin grew up as an only child. With Spanish as her first language, she was engaging with her friends physically before she could communicate verbally. She grew up surrounded by sport, music and art and found a passion for circus early on, attending Warehouse Circus in Canberra. Cecilia went on to co-found the company ‘Poncho Circus’ at the age of fifteen, where she created and performed in circus shows as part of an ensemble.

Cecilia is also a talented musician, demonstrating this by composing scores to three different circus productions. Upon graduating high school, Cecilia went on to study circus full time at the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) where she specialized in dance trapeze, Washington trapeze and group acrobatics. She joined the Circa ensemble in late 2016 and is excited to create new works with the company.
