About The Author

Joe Fearn. Founder. I always loved gymnastics, dance and theatre. Any excuse to show off! So I leapt at the chance to join a cultural exchange programme in America and spend the summer at circus school as soon as I was 18. It was the perfect worry-free life; setting up a show, making people happy and then doing it all over again. Year after year, I went back. We travelled across 35 different states, living in trailers, buses and hotels. It was the circus life of books and childhood dreams. When I hit 25 I worried about where I was going next. I wanted a career so I started by trying to get a job. With no qualifications and no clue what I was looking for, I struggled. So I did what I knew and loved, and in 2011 started a circus class (with one member- Jodie who now is a pro performer). And just like that, Circus Mash was born. 10 years later, one class became forty and Circus Mash is the heart of Birmingham’s community circus; my inner mood board painted across the city. Creating shows and performing were always on my mind. So, inspired by my love of fashion and creativity, House of Mash emerged. A way to share dance, song and spoken word in all its hope and glory. And to showcase the incredible young people who inspire me every single day.
