Co-Founder, Creative Director, Head Rigger, Company Member

Lachlan McAulay lives, breaths, sleeps and dreams circus and performance.

At 13, a time when most young people still have no idea what they want to do with their lives, Lachlan joined joined The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia’s leading youth circus,  and immersed himself in every aspect of circus training. His dedication and talent for ground, aerial and ensemble work soon caught the eyes of his trainers. He spent his teenage years combining circus training with touring and performing throughout Australia and the world, an education he describes as “unique, exhilarating and very, very inspirational.”

After graduation he kept pursuing his passion – first as a freelance performer and circus trainer, and then as a valuable member with Circa, one of Australia’s leading contemporary circuses.

Lachlan’s passion for circus doesn’t stop at performing. Off stage he is a highly skilled rigger, a ropes technician and prop maker. He takes the role caring for the company seriously, and this care extends beyond his rigging role. Lachlan is known for his ongoing support, positivity and empathy – even during long tours, after hard training sessions and when Natano is hungry.
