Ellis grew up in the Scottish Borders, where one too many ceilidhs led him down a career in the arts. Movement & Physical Theatre are Ellis’ main interests, having trained at Newcastle College before moving to Wales and graduating in Dance at Cardiff Metropolitan University (then UWIC).

Fresh out of uni, Ellis was wearing many freelance hats including a marketing one for Theatr Iolo and a communications one for Cardiff Dance Festival. Alongside this, Ellis started his own company ‘52 Hertz’ and received Arts Council Wales funding for their first production at the Wales Millennium Centre. This led to a ‘proper job’ in the Centre, where Ellis eventually found Hijinx (one of its residents).

After an initial secondment in 2016 to coordinate the Unity Festival, Ellis joined the team full-time to tour manage Fred’s epic adventures and coordinate the 2017 relocation of Unity to Caernarfon.

Day-to-day Ellis looks after the production side of the business, managing logistics of Hijinx’s many projects. Hijinx is Ellis’ favourite hat.
