Aerial Hammock


What is Aerial Hammock? What is Aerial Slammock?

An aerial hammock is an aerial silk looped in half, resulting in a “hammock” in which the performer contorts, flips, and poses. An aerial “slammock” is a hammock with the addition of two long strands of fabric which can be swirled and manipulated to gorgeous effect. Hammock and slammock are ideal for atmospheric performance or aerial bartending, or can be performed as a stand-alone act.
