Cariel Klein: Associate Producer

Cariel Klein has been a part of Double Edge since before she can remember. After performing as a child in four summer spectacles, she left to pursue a circus career and trained at several elite circus schools, while at the same time receiving her degree in the Political Performance of the Self at the Gallatin School of NYU. After spending time in both the circus and tech industry, Cariel returned to Double Edge, eventually assuming the role of Associate Producer in 2017. She uses her background in circus, dance, and body therapy to choreograph and perform the flying elements of the performances, including designing several of the aerial apparatus. Cariel is most passionate as a producer and co-leader of Art Justice residency and practice throughout Double Edge, as well as representing rural multi-generational work on a national and international scene.
