Steve Ryan is an artist who works with many disciplines and styles – as an actor, a physical performer and a director of non-traditional theatre.

Originally from the west of Ireland, he studied philosophy at universities in both the UK and Belgium, before focusing on physical performance and theatre.

He began his training at Circomedia, developing an understanding of circus technique, theatre and movement, before continuing his education at École Philippe Gaulier, discovering the fundamentals of play and beauty on the stage as a performer.

With the critically acclaimed circus company Ockham’s Razor he has toured nationally and internationally, as well as performing in various productions for small and large scale companies across the UK and Ireland.

As a performer and as a director he is constantly seeking out new ways of moving and understanding on and off the stage – bringing a sense of pleasure and a sensitivity to each performance.
