The lyra is one of the most elegant and graceful of aerial acts with twists, turns and displays of great flexibility and style. It is also known as the aerial hoop or ring.
As a circular steel apparatus (resembling a hula hoop) it is suspended from a ceiling or aerial rig on which circus artists perform aerial acrobatics.
There are so many ways it can be used but primarily static, swinging or spinning.
You can have single acts, duo acts and group acts with up to 4 girls on one lyra or many girls on individual lyras in a synchronised performance.
We have beautiful aerial carousel act with 4 girls on a spinning horizontal lyra.
Ambient Entertainment: The lyra can also be used to create atmosphere for corporate events as people enter the event space. Artists hold pretty poses and create a generally beautiful ambience. We have found this strategy works really well for these type of corporate or charity events or any event that needs to wow their audience.
Costumes: We have an extensive store of costumes and are often able to costume to fit with your theme. If we can't we can usually create something for an additional fee.
Rigging: Single point 4 to 8m high. Above this height chain motor or counter weight system is used.
Point rated to 1 tonne. Ground area 3m diameter circle clearance.
