Alfa Marks initially trained as a contemporary dancer, graduating from the London Studio Centre in 2010. Upon graduating she began to perform with Incandescence Circus Theatre. Working alongside circus performers sparked an interest, leading to a career change when she decided to retrain as an aerialist.
Currently for ENO: Eurydice the Hero The Mask of Orpheus
Starting out with traditional circus, Alfa has worked in all areas of the circus industry over the past 8 years, from full-length theatre shows, to corporate events, cabarets, festivals and galas in the UK and internationally. She is happiest when able to combine her skills in dance, theatre and aerial.
She has just returned from working in Macau on a large-scale production for Stufish over the past year, and is very excited to be making her debut aerial performance within an opera at ENO.
