Grace LlanwarneNew College Postgraduate Village alumna, Grace Llanwarne (NCV 2016-2018), was recently seconded to work as a rigging intern on Cirque du Soleil’s production, Kurios. While Grace lived at NCV, she studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Staging) at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), and developed her long-term interest in the circus and aerial performances. This saw her create a portable tightwire apparatus for her major project in third year. Grace continues to pursue a career as a mechanist, rigger and set builder – including as a mechanist for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is currently showing in Melbourne.
