Aerialist, actor, and dancer Rain Anya holds a degree in “Performance for Social Change.” She has trained extensively in aerial arts and physical theatre, including immersive programs such as Circomedia (Bristol, UK), NECCA (Brattleboro, VT), and Circle in the Square (NYC, NY). Rain’s aerial career began with the political circus company Wise Fool New Mexico. Out of inspired collaborations there, the seeds for the Paper Doll Militia were sown. With over two decades of experience onstage, Rain’s life’s work is in the integration of circus arts with other performance and movement disciplines. Most recent credits include: BALD; Beyond the Veil; Fog Fest (San Francisco); London-based Peter Pan, (US tour), and This Twisted Tale (U.S. Tour and Edinburgh Fringe Festival). Rain is also a passionate aerial arts and yoga instructor. She has taught classes, specialty workshops, and private lessons at over 20 different facilities across the US and the UK.
