Bio

Welcome/ Bienvenue to ledadavies.com

Leda Davies is a circus artist specializing in silks (AKA aerial tissu or fabric) based out of Montreal, QC.

Born and raised in the prairies of Calgary, AB, Leda holds a BFA in Drama, and a minor in Dance from the University of Calgary.  Following graduation Leda was immediately pursued by professional theatre and dance companies, and began capturing audiences with her unique fusion of disciplines, and her powerful stage presence.

Always at the forefront, and with an ardent desire to push performative boundaries, Leda’s creative repertoire spans the artistic gamete from devised, site specific to solo creative work.  Finding that perfect balance between physicality and story telling in contemporary circus, Leda specializes aerial circus arts.

Leda has performed worldwide with some of Canada’s leading theatrical companies, including touring to Japan with Green Fools Theater, and across Canada with The Old Trout Puppet Workshop.   Not only a tenacious actor, as a dancer, and movement director, Leda’s work has been presented in the Feats Festival (Alberta Dance Alliance), the Annual Alberta Dance Festival (DSW), the Fluid Movement Arts Festival (Springboard Dance) and the Kaleido Festival (Bird Soul Productions).

With the same awe, mystery, majesty, and power of the prairie skies Leda is taking the circus metropolis of Montreal by storm.  She is currently creating new, innovative aerial circus performances, and continuing to challenge the art form to reach new heights.
