Aerial Straps

Home » Aerial Straps

The aerial straps combine flexibility, power and technique. These are two separable straps made of cotton and polyamide that fall vertically. A seemingly simple discipline which nevertheless gives an infinite possibility of expression, on which it is possible to turn, swivel, swing, dance, play, with hands, feet, body, neck…

I use aerial straps and the physical constraints they impose on my body to express my feelings, my emotions, in a definite infinite space: weightlessness.

AERIAL STRAPS ACT

I created an act with aerial straps during the second containment in December 2020. A need to satisfy this need for creation, to create a parenthesis, in this period when our lives as artists are on hold.

An aerial straps act mixing softness, power and poetry. A highlighting of the struggle between the forces from below and those from above. Metaphor of the White Bird, which comes to fly in the space of the glances to touch hearts and souls. A solitary journey, a kind of existential quest, whose deep intention lies at the center of our intimacy.

Would you like to receive the complete video of this aerial act? as well as the technical data sheet? N’hésitez pas à me contacter !

It is possible to adapt, modify, change this number of straps. I place myself at the disposal of a choreographer and/or a particular request to meet your needs.

Why Aerial Straps ?

The aerial straps imposed themselves on me. Trained as a gymnast, with skills on momentum and strength apparatus, I was attracted to this aerial speciality which requires almost similar physical abilities. However, it was the freedom of expression offered by this circus discipline that pushed me to make it my specialty.
