Support This Project: Secret City, JONATHAN NOSAN

“Unable to touch his toes at 22, Nosan moved to London for a year of physical theater and circus training, then three years as a contortion student of Mr. Lu Yi at the San Francisco Circus Centre…”

Many of us make important decisions at the age of 22, but Jonathan Nosen’s decision to become a contortionist has got to be by far one of the most interesting. Reading like a sort of theatrical fable, Jonathan (who at the time was living in a small cabin Northwest Mountains of Kyoto) switched from the study of Design of Sacred Space to acrobatics after seeing a Chinese contortionist in Nagasaki and Canadian clown in Tokyo.

It was a wise decision leading to a highly successful film and entertainment career, as well as his 2010 performemoirt piece BAGABONES and the co-creation of Acroback Productions .
