Ken Evil

Ken  was raised in the grubby Dublin suburb town of Balbriggan.

He entered the world of entertainment at a very early age. By the time he was 13 he was watching at least 7 hours of television a night. In 1995 Ken began traveling with his juggling equipment on the continent, bumbling through Holland, down to France, and settling for a time in Spain. On his travels he met up with buskers, street performers and artists and became inspired with their work and their way of life. He began believing he could live the way they did. In April of 1997 Ken met Tina Segner on Grafton Street in Dublin; they have been working together ever since.

Ken and Tina formed Tumble Circus in 1998 and moved to, and are now based out of Belfast. They believe in a commitment to their work and training, and this ideology has help them surpass their own goals of becoming street performers to now touring internationally as a professional street theatre company and circus performers.

Tina Machina

Tina was brought up in and quickly became bored of the comfortable picturesque university town of Lund, Sweden. With nothing to look forward to but horse, homework and the promise of a pleasant grave in utopia suburbia, she would spend every night dreaming of living a life less ordinary.

One day Tina and her friend agreed that Lund was to small for people with big dreams, enough they decided and left. They were restless teenagers, eager to taste adventure so with a backpack each they hitch hiked their way to see the world. In 1995 Tina came to Ireland and got involved with a street theatre company. It was here that she was first introduced to circus.  Tina was immediately hooked, and this passion for physical skills was to take her to Circomedia in Bristol.  Since then she hasperformed nationally and internationally from fields in Sligo to deserts in Australia
