This passionate, romantic International Trapeze Act performance combines unique dynamic elements with aerial contortion. The seamless flow of highly technical skills and intense passion creates a fluid aerial ballet that never fails to elicit a powerful emotional response. A complex routine of balance, strength, discipline and grace, they bring a particular elegance to their presentation of the human body in all its beauty and in all that it can do.
International Trapeze Act members
Originally from Chicago and now residing in Germany, this International Trapeze Act is comprised of two performers. They have worked together for five years to combine their backgrounds in aerial arts, gymnastics, and contortion to create this dynamic aerial adagio act. They developed their act independently without primary instruction from a circus school or dedicated trainer and have toured their act internationally in some of the top circuses and variety houses in Europe.
They have performed internationally and competed in 7 international circus festivals winning 12 awards. In August 2010 they made history becoming the the first American circus artists to perform in Havana, Cuba since 1959. Officially sanctioned by the United States Government to travel to Cuba, they competed in the 9th International Circus Festival, CIRCUBA in Havana, where this International Trapeze Act earned the Bronze medal.
