Bec Applebee


Being able to facilitate my own ideas and to Direct and co Direct with Simon Harvey on my own productions has been a very different phase in my career. It has been a challenge and a joy.

I have been very fortunate to work as a Director with some exceptional companies, very often working as a Theatre Performance Director on larger multidisciplines productions.

Incandescence Circus Theatre Company.
As a younger performer I trained in Acrobatics and Static Trapeze at Fooltime in Bristol ,so it has been my great pleasure and privilege to work as the Theatre Performance Director with Artistic Director Satya Lapman and her incredible team

Incandescence is a highly innovative and exciting Circus Theatre company that has been producing and touring circus productions both nationally and internationally for the last 17 years to over 50 different countries.
Although based in Cornwall the performers are drawn from an international and culturally diverse pool with different religious and performance traditions.  This cultural fusion gives a unique richness to the performances and Incandescence values this diversity as one of its greatest assets.

For incandescence I work as the Theatre director for large touring shows, having worked on:
Cirque Elemental
Esmerelda’s Night Circus
Alice in Wonderland
Vintage Circus
