About Farrell

Headshot of Black artist Farrell Cox

Farrell Cox is a black British actress, aerialist theatre maker and solo performer, specialising in Tippy hoop, wirework/harness and physical theatre. She has trained at Dell Arte International, East15 Acting School and with renowned clown Philippe Gaulier. She has had the opportunity to perform nationally and internationally in her career.

Farrell has worked with companies including Glyndebourne opera, The RSC, Hot Brown Honey, Mimbre Acrobats, HBO, Samsung, Les Enfants Terribles and London Olympic 2012 Ceremonies.

Using her versatility as a dancer, clown and aerialist to captivate the audience, she brings lightness and humour into her work and is always enthusiastic to explore a variety of narratives using physical theatre. Inspired by grand guignol and dark comedy her aim is always to tell the truth within a narrative, not shy away from the harrowing parts but allow the lightness and humour to be brought forward. Creating performance excites her as a tool of self-help and representation to encourage others.
