Show Productions Directors

Both directors of SPL (Show Productions Ltd) started their careers as professional performers.

Irina's artistic career started over 25 years ago when she became a professional gymnast in Russia.  She has performed in the prestigious ballet/acrobatic Theatre "Releve" in Moscow and in World Famous Circuses like"Tihany" in South America as well as "Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus" in North America.

Irina then went on to be part of The Moscow State Circus in the UK, playing the important role of scouting the acts, contracting the artists and being Creative Director of The Moscow State Circus.

Paul's career started as a professional juggler, from there he went on to directing and managing the UK tours of the World renowned Moscow State Circus for 15 years. With upwards of 60 artistes and staff on National tours he has been at the forefront of logistical operations for many years organising the movement of personnel and equipment, making sure it arrives and works, when and where it’s supposed to at over 50 venues each year.

Since starting SPL in 2016, the company has gone upwards and onwards in the entertainment sector Worldwide. From working with big names like Cirque du Soleil and the BBC to smaller shows in the Qatar desert, they have done it all, and delivered it to the highest standard.

Some of the most notable circus shows they have produced in the UK include:

Moscow State Circus
Circus Extreme
Circus Vegas
Circus Berlin

Loving all aspects of their jobs, from behind the scenes hard work, which is often at silly hours and in muddy fields, to the final result, when the audience appreciates the skill and professionalism of the show.

As well as working with SPL, Paul is also the secretary of the Association of Circus Proprietors of GB, representing the interests of UK circus with Central and local Government officials on a daily basis.
