Artist Bio

A big personality from a small Victorian town, Leigh in an explosive performance powerhouse with an almost preternatural talent for entertainment across Circus, Dance, and Acting. 

With a magnificent set of wildly entertaining skills up his sleeve, you can expect some seriously sensational performances that cleverly fuse Juggling, Clowning, Cyr Wheel, Acrobatics, Dance, Burlesque, Rollerblading, and Improv/Character acting. 

Graduating from Melbourne’s National Institute of Circus Arts in 2016, Leigh continues to work as an industry professional. He served an impressive six-year residency touring nationally and internationally with Dummies Corp throughout the world’s festival circuit in a variety of productions and shows including Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth Fringe Festivals, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the London Underbelly Festival, Brighton Fringe Festival UK, the Busan International Comedy Festival, the Sydney Comedy Gala, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

A gifted dancer, he was also engaged as a choreographer for the LSC theatre production of Frankie the Musical, and in 2018 took on the role of both Director and Choreographer for the LSC Cabaret. 

A true-blue performer, bringing life to stages big and small as a soloist, ensemble cast member or creative advisor, Leigh Rhodes is a significant tour de force of skill and magnetism, contributing to the exemplary reputation of Australia as a leading source of world-class cirque talent.
