Sarah Houbolt

I’m Sarah Houbolt – a bold and vivacious circus performer. My dedication to creativity, physicality and social change comes from being a Paralympics swimmer (Sydney 2000), my Bachelor of Social Work / Bachelor of Arts (Politics and Sociology) degree, and my previous work experience at Queenslanders with Disability Network, Child Poverty Action Group, and in the Auckland Council community arts team.

I’ve trained in aerials, acrobatics, and hula-hoops at Vulcana Women’s Circus. In the last couple of years, I’ve performed with the Dust Palace, in Cirque Du Soleil's upcoming 3D movie, and in the upcoming Romeo & Juliet: A Love Song film. I believe that fortune favours the bold, and hope to continue creating work that is magical, challenges perceptions and offers alternative perspectives.
