PT and Abby Wire




Patrick Tobin had his first taste of wire walking at age 13 with Circus Smirkus, North America’s pioneering youth circus. It was there where his passion for circus and performing were born. Patrick furthered his training at The National Circus School of Montréal where he specialized in tightwire and aerial rope. Patrick has performed in the US and Canada and his credits include Chicago's Midnight Circus and Montréal Complètement Cirque. Patrick has also appeared in commercial print and film campaigns through Planet Earth Talent in Chicago. Other skills include equestrian, stunt work, aerial harness, acting and dance.


Abby Suskin also began wire dancing at age 13 with Circus Smirkus, where she toured and performed for six years training under Molly Saudek and Ariele Ebacher.  Abby performed for several years in Chicago with the dance company, Same Planet Different Wold Dance, and on tightwire with The Midnight Circus.  Performing highlights include the Montréal Complètement Cirque Festival and the Kennedy Center’s Look Both Ways Festival. She and PT most recently traveled to Europe and South America, participating in the Convencion de Alambre in Cali, Colombia.
