Not only is Hannah Rigby my gorgeous friend, but she is a beautiful classically trained dancer who works for the biggest touring circus in Australasia, Circus Rio!

This multi talented dancer, singer and actress is also a beautiful human being, always bringing positivity and light to young performers through her social media. But the life of a performer can sometimes be really lonely and when Hannah posted a reminder on her social media a few weeks ago, I thought I need to get her on the podcast to talk about it.

When you’re a young adult, it might seem exciting or even preferable to move far away from family and the familiar. However that can soon wear off if you’re not accustomed to moving from one place to the next…

Hannah and I chat about her wonderful and colourful work with Circus Rio, what it’s like being a travelling performer, tips for anyone thinking of a similar career and what you can do as a family member or friend if you know someone working far away from loved ones.

We go deep, it gets a bit intense, but it’s such an important discussion to have. If you’re a parent or student looking at moving overseas for work or dreaming of a life that’s constantly on the move, then this is an episode you need to listen to in order to make a fully informed decision.

Grit & Grace,
