New Aerial Sphere Act

I have been working with Leyla on Starfiz's latest aerial act....the Aerial Sphere! Our first performances of our new act were at The Aeronaut pub in Acton, in a circus cabaret compered by Jon Udry.

Aerial prop maker Jonathan Graham created our new apparatus so that we could further develop our Emma Insley Aerial Creation Fund Award work, which began with our unique Spinning Silks act. The Aerial Sphere is a more compact aerial act with faster spins, and can be rigged in low venues. This makes it perfect for cabarets, or for events with a pulley system or winch so that we can be lifted up high.

The cabaret version of our act is performed to FKA twigs' Two Weeks. The aerial act is sensual with a swirl of hair and graceful shapes with long limbs.

The Aerial Sphere act is also available for corporate events with different music and costuming.
