FULL BIOGRAPHY

We3 is a new theatrical company comprising of Clare Bartholomew, Derek Ives and Nicci Wilks. Clare, Derek and Nicci are some of Australia’s best established and most highly respected circus, theatre and clown performers, who have developed and represented Australia’s internationally excellent circus culture on the world stage in companies including Circus Oz, Rock n Roll Circus and The Business.

Nicci Wilks is highly regarded within the Australian circus community, as a physical performer, a comedienne and a creator of unique, physical characters that frequently challenge notions of gender and class. Her work as an independent performer and with major Australian companies is intelligent, subversive and keenly admired by peer and audience alike.

Clare Bartholomew is one of the foremost contemporary clown performers in Australia. Her award winning work with The Business and Die Roten Punkte has been critically acclaimed locally and internationally. She has a unique grasp of all aspects of clown, bouffon, physical theatre and comedy.

As a founding member of Brisbane’s C!RCA and The Candy Butchers, Derek Ives explores the line between clown and bouffon. His work is profoundly dark and characterised by a mastery of rigging and apparatus.
