Janoah anygoodjokes? Bailin learned to unicycle in the empty after-hours corridors of his middle school. He continued practicing with the Suspenders Juggling Troupe in Falmouth (MA), dropped countless objects in his back yard, then traveled New England for two seasons with the Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour, where he dropped slightly less often.

Janoah graduated in 2014 from College of the Atlantic in Maine, where he grasped at and fumbled with performance-related studies: theater, movement, objects, puppets, film, literature, carnival, gender, etc.

 

In past summers Janoah has taught the precarious skills of letting things fall and picking them up at the Payomet Performing Arts Center in Truro (MA). He now instructs students near Portland (ME) how to juggle, perform and drop things playfully. He currently coaches and choreographs the Gym Dandies Children's Circus of Scarborough. He also helps organize programing for The Living Room Dance Collective in Portland.

 

Janoah tours two evening-length solo shows (SpinS & meSSeS) that weave circus, dance and puppetry into entertaining and mind-bending performances for all ages. He presents variety arts for stages, festivals and parades all over New England, leaving behind a wake of tumbled juggling props!
