Circus Arts

I toured with a circus for nearly three years when I was in my twenties and I still have a huge soft spot for a really good act.

I've never seen this piece of equipment used before. It's similar to the German wheel, which is two of these hoops joined together. There is a simplicity and a grace in this act that I really loved.


This next one is just stunning. It's an adaptation of the Chinese poles - in this case there's just the one pole. It's called the Vertical Tango.
