An extremely popular choice for events, aerial performers provide exceptionally beautiful circus style entertainment at dazzling heights. Aerial trapeze acts, hoop artists and silk artists are bound to take your audience’s breath away and are guaranteed to deliver a dramatic visual spectacle at any event. Aerial entertainment also has many practical advantages for large events as it removes any issue of guests being able to see the stage.
For maximum impact during the evening one solution would be to hire a range of aerial acts. We did this recently for one of our clients who got to enjoy three very different aerial performers in between each course of their seated dinner. This meant that there was a real buzz during the meal as guests enjoyed a different spectacle at regular intervals.
One important point – do make sure your venue can handle supporting performers suspended in the air. You’ll need to check health and safety, height restrictions and building regulations as many venues don’t allow rigging to be installed on the ceiling – a very popular solution we would recommend is to use a free standing aerial act. Or alternatively free standing rigs are available to be be used for hoops or similar acts or even more dynamic acts such as Swinging Trapeze or Cloud-Swing.
We spoke to Olivia Warner, Entertainment Manager at Kru Talent, about the latest trends for using Aerial acts at events and she told us about the some of their favourite acts who are incorporating other elements into their performance to ensure your event has that wow factor that gets everyone talking:
“For people who want to mix modern technologies with circus performances, Digital Circus is perfect; it uses live motion tracking to enhance and integrate the show with projection and immersive graphics. And anyone who wants to put a twist on some classical music would love Air Violin who is able to play traditional pieces whilst hanging upside down and spinning above peoples heads!”
“For an incredibly elegant duo of aerial and ground work acrobats, we recommend Eternity. Their performances are internationally known and always greeted with fantastic response. Eternity are the perfect addition for any event that you could be planning, whether it be a corporate event all the way through to an outdoor festival. They can tailor their aerial solo or duo numbers specifically for your event. Not only this but they are also amazing contortionist, performing a duo number that is sure to impress.”
