Aerial Arts Performance

Modern Acrobatics

IMG_6309

The students and artists from Circus Cirkör put on a great show during their performance on Saturday. I'm not that familiar with all the terms, but on the first photo we see five girls in an amazing aerial hoop act. As I took this photo they had formed a V high up in the air. On the second photo one girl (there were two of them in this number), is using the smooth rope, an act where the artist works from a vertically hanging rope.

These are both excellent photos, Steffe...I like the first one the best, but that's just a personal preference for the symmetry expressed.

The girl in the second shot is very beautiful.

That must need a lot of strength and flexibility! Great art and great pictures!

Nicely shot!

A Calder mobile made up of people. I hope someone inspects the equipment carefully.

Don't try any of those aerial moves, Steffe! I'm afraid you slip and land on your head!

Excellent captures, Steffe. You impart your sense of awe to the rest of us.

Lois said...

Those are fabulous shots! They really have to be athletic and strong to perform those stunts.

Allison said...

Aren't there any cute guys in tights with big muscles in the circus that you could post for us women who look at your blog? No tats or piercings though, please;)

Steffe said...

It was a tricky shoot. The sun in the way but I managed to get a few good shots.

Sound advice Leif!

Of course Allison. Just wait a few more hours and your wish is my command.

So much fun to watch. It takes a fair amount of strength.

The fist shot is great - all the different angles and legs bent in all directions. A good show I imagine...
