Invented in 1995 by André Simard an acrobatic research and development specialist for Cirque du Soleil. It is the most popular of aerial acts and for good reason.
The Aerial silks is one of the newest and impressive styles of aerial acts and it has virtually rewritten the “rules” of aerial arts. It is because of this act that aerial acts are no longer the sole domain of Circus. Many acts have the appearance of an aerial ballet or dynamic dance in the air either holding, dropping or suspended from long pieces of fabric in beautiful and flexible poses, with twists and turns and death defying drops and falls. It is visually stunning and these acts never fail to impress.
Our silk acts vary in style from the dynamic to the lyrical. We have single, duo, triple and synchronised group acts available.
Ambient Entertainment: The silks can be used to create atmosphere for corporate events as people enter the event space. Artists look gorgeous and hold aerial poses to create a generally beautiful ambience. We have found this strategy works really well for corporate and 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.
Single point from 5 to 11m high and an extra tie off point (to lift silk away when not in use).
Point rated to 1 tonne. Ground area 3m diameter circle clearance.
