Gil has recently joined the team at Skylight Circus Arts in Rochdale - working alongside the company as choreographer for Angel in 2014, co-artistic director for Revealing the Roch in 2016 and as a key member of the award winning team behind Silver Circus - a circus skills project engaging older adults in the artform. The project began in early 2015, outreaching to older adults with dementia and other conditions in daycare settings. The current phase of the project sees the inclusion of a weekly free circus skills session for anyone over 55. The project won the Culture and Health Award at the Rochdale Sports and Culture Awards 2016. Gil is hoping to
improve her aerial. tightwire and juggling
skills in 2017.
