Last week here at ImaginAerial’s International Headquarters, we discussed what awesomeness we see on the Ground for 2012. This week we want to share with you what gets us excited in the air.
This act is truly different. The apparatus itself is unlike any other you’ll see and it’s not big so what you mainly see is how the acrobats work with one another. It’s also uses only one point so it’s easy to hang anywhere and can be seen from any angle. It never ceases to get a thunderous applause when it finishes. Click here on our promo video to check it out!
By now, most of us have probably seen a silk act somewhere. The beautiful flowing fabric is beautiful and evocative. There is a reason this apparatus has become so popular. However, most of the time it’s one performer on one set of silks, but two is better than one! This act is truly unique because two performers intertwine themselves on one set of silks. They also manage to accomplish this without either of them coming down throughout the entire act which is very unusual. This act is so unique that it has been invited around the world from the Krystal Palace in Germany to the Olympic Stadium in Athens. Watch the Act that made our company.
Although based on the more traditional circus trapeze, this act featuring four performers and a bar with four spaces definitely commands attention. The beautiful part about hiring this act is that you not only get the benefit of having a big group number which will automatically create excitement, but each of the performers can do other acts as well. This means that you truly get more bang for your buck. Aside from possible economic advantages, this act is also a very different type of trapeze act. As with most of the acts it can also be adjusted to suit your particular style. Here you will see it played both in a modern Cirque style manner as well as a sassier vaudevillian way.
Spinning hoops are another act that is gaining a lot of popularity lately. It’s exciting and easy to hang, but again we can always up the excitement level by another notch simply by adding some partnering. A lyra spins and especially beautiful when our two bendy performers wind around each other and this elegant apparatus.
Duo Cloud Swing
Last but definitely not least is The Cloud Swing. A Cloud Swing is basically a single rope set up like a hammock that a performer sometimes swings back and forth on. In this case, it is original because the duo uses two ropes at different heights and weaves them like a cat’s cradle back and forth creating suprising shapes and images. It is part of our Luminarium show which you can see here, worth watching and getting excited about.

Save the world on a g-string, rather than a shoestring. Why not?
It may be cold outside, but it’s pretty warm at the studio (kind of hot, actually)! What is it, you ask, that has us all a-twitter? Ground acts, ya’ll. Ground acts. Come see the must-have acts for 2012!

Why we love it: Because it’s amazing to see people sit on their own heads! Also fun? The audience’s reaction to watching it! If I did this, they’d have to call an ambulance, so I leave it to the pros. Gorgeous!
