Heidi and Joel of Matica/Thrive have been performing and training together in the physical arts of Circus since 1999. They traveled the Americas, street performing and adventuring until they settled in CT in 2001. Here, they perform in festivals, events and schools around the Northeast. They teach in many schools and community centers and opened Thrive Movement Studio in 2013 where Heidi teaches aerial fabric and trapeze and Joel teaches ground circus acts and Capoeira. They love the quiet life of artists mixed with the wild fun of circus!
