Acts can be hired as already choreographed or completely new pieces devised to suit your event, the same applies to costuming.

Average performance time for each apparatus is between 5 and 8 minutes.  Acts can be combined and/or devised to cover any amount of time and staggered throughout an event.

There isn’t anywhere where we can’t do something!  Inside, outside, high and low, far and wide.
 
We have a number of performers to draw on for bigger pieces – aerialists, acrobats, dancers and other highly skilled groups and individuals

AERIAL ACTS
 

Aerial Tissu/Silks
Performed on two lengths of fabric and often described as aerial Ballet; flexible split holds, fast roll downs, drops and foot spins 
- A range of different coloured fabrics
- UV light performances on black or white tissue are exceptionally visual
- 1 to 6 tissu performers available for any performance
- Video projections are an effective option for tissu as the fabric picks up images well

Spanish web

- This act requires a second person as the ‘spinner’

Aerial Harness
A full body harness attached either to static rope with a counter balancer(climber) or a bungee. Movement can be slow and graceful or fast and dynamic. Aerialist(s) can perform at one height or be counterbalanced with a climber for more dynamic movement allowing use of the floor as well as the air. 
- Costuming can be a lot more elaborate due to not having to climb.
