About Head over Wheels

Head Over Wheels is a disabled and non-disabled multidisciplinary company that combines aerial, music, and theatre to create shows that push the boundaries of Circus.

They strive for access within the arts, centering their work on inclusive design and focusing on access as a creative tool rather than an additional afterthought.
