About Brian Neller:
Hi! I’m Brian, your host for this evening.
After living the apparent dream (house, business, two cars & a house full of condiments) I was no closer to being satisfied & living fulfilled in my life. Living day to day with a mundane job, surrounded by image driven worker bees I was looking for an alternative to the daily grind. Circus school! Giving up the comfortable life I ran off to CircoArts in NZ. Two years, many life lessons and injuries later I had earned a fancy piece of paper to stick on my wall, letting people know that I was qualified to play (quite the unuseful paper, but it looks pretty).
An interest in fire had become a passion for play.
Since circus school I have travelled teaching and performing around the world. Germany, Italy, Austria, England, Wales, Switzerland, USA, Canada, South Africa, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia & New Zealand. Meeting, learning from and teaching alongside some of the worlds greatest object manipulators I have explored the world doing what I love.
Being a tech geek I love dissecting patterns, breaking down what is available into simple form and rebuilding it again as all encapuslating concepts. I love teaching as it solidifies what I know by sharing it.
I will be teaching all the things! Mainly poi and double staff, maybe even a talk. Many of my workshops have been recreated to cover a broad spectrum of toys as conceptually they are the same across most objects.
I hope you will come and join my workshops 😀
