After training with Circomedia, Matilda Leyser went on to work as an aerialist.

Her show, Line, Point, Plane, was commissioned by the London International Mime Festival and The Royal Opera House, and premiered in 2006 before touring nationally and internationally.

After ten years in the air, in 2008 Matilda decided to come down to earth and join the London-based theatre company Improbable as their Associate Director. Mathilda is also a mother and writer who founded Mothers Who Make, a peer support group and creative exchange session for mothers who are artists.
