Ross Gibson – Artistic Director

Ross has been an Artistic director for Circus Couture for 6 consecutive years now since “86 Peculiar Place” back in 2012. After competing for his home country, Great Britain, in the sport of tumbling, where he earned several World and European medals, he then started performing with Cirque du Soleil back in 2004 when he joined the cast of ‘Mystere' as The Red Bird where he can still be seen performing today.  Since starting with Cirque, he has also played the role of Trickster in ‘Kooza’ and Mr. Piggy in ‘LOVE’.  Alongside Cirque he danced with the 'Las Vegas Contemporary Dance Theater' for many years.  As well as directing several Circus Couture productions, his philanthropic endeavors also include Production Assistant on One Night for One Drop, as well as Entertainment Director for the elaborate One Drop after-show parties. As his ‘day job’ he currently owns and runs 'Skin City Body Painting', the nation’s premier body painting company based in the heart of the Las Vegas Art’s district, where he enjoys helping to provide artistic body art with the great models, talent and performers Las Vegas has to offer.  He is delighted to once again partner his Circus Couture directorial work with his good friend and colleague Erica Linz, as well as his husband Benoit Beaufils while they both train and perform an incredibly complex juggling routine of all their career responsibilities with the rewarding yet demanding task of fathering their 3-year-old daughter Siella Jane who has been an avid audience member of the show since she was 1 month old!
