Gwynne Flanagan she/her 

Gwynne Flanagan has been a fixture in the Washington DC circus scene since 2009. Originally from California, she studied theater arts at San Francisco State University, and completed an MFA in Acting from the American Conservatory Theater. In 2012, Flanagan graduated from the New England Center for Circus Arts Performance Program with a focus on aerial fabric and duo trapeze.


Flanagan believes the key to transformative storytelling demands evocative and visceral physical engagement. She is passionate about creating performances that bridge the  gap between contemporary theater, dance, and circus. Her most recent production of “Porque, Si!,” a show investigating the intersectionality of flamenco and aerial dance, played at Theater J in April of 2023.


Gwynne is a founding member of Girls on Trapeze, Infinite Stage Theater and Haus of Marzipan. Flanagan also works as the Casting and Talent Director for Skylark Creative Group Events and Entertainment.


She has performed at The White House, the National Cathedral, Smithsonian Building Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Arena Stage, Studio Theater DC, MGM National Harbor, Atlas Theater, Gaylord National Harbor, American Conservatory Theater, Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, and the Festival De Teatro in Havana, Cuba.
