Kimtortion is perhaps best known for her unforgettable signature contortion acts. She can also be found taking her astonishing skills to the air, as both a trapeze and lyra artist, and to other artforms including acrobatics, hand balancing, adagio, clowning, and more. She has amazed and delighted Perth audiences performing with companies such as Circus Joseph Ashton—where she performs a Rag Doll contortion act with Joseph—Bizircus, and Fliptease. In addition to this, Kimtortion performs regularly as a freelance artist at festivals, functions and corporate events. Kim has also been a trainer, administrator and board member at the Western Australian Circus School (WACS).
A hands on circus enthusiast, Kim has experience in every aspect of the circus from the ground up, including not only starring roles in the main ring, but also in rigging (Kim holds RB/DB qualifications for the rigging of aerial circus equipment), lighting and sound… even putting up the big top, running pony rides and making fairy floss!
Kimtortion is also a musician, having studied music at UWA and WAAPA, and performed Viola in orchestras and ensembles around Australia. Most recently, Kimtortion wrote and produced the music for the Metaxis Experiment as part of the Artrage Festival. Kim also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Cultural Studies ~ Performance Studies.

Since 2007, Kimtortion has been performing with Perth’s original burlesque company, Sugar Blue Burlesque:
“In her cheeky, freaky, bone-bending homage to the worlds of circus, cabaret and burlesque, this real-life doll will impress you with her impossible contortions, sexy stage acrobatics and legs that just go on and on and on…”
Performing a fusion of classic circus with vintage burlesque, Kim has wowed burlesque audiences with graceful feather fan dances en pointe, Taptortion (tap dancing and contortion), showgirl lyra, cabaret-style chair dances (including handbalancing), as well as joining other cast members in skits and scenes, choruslines, Can-Can’s and group choreographies. Kim is also an instructor with The Burlesque Academy, and has been a guest instructor for the Perth Girl Jam.
