No matter how many years in the events industry you have under your belt you will always see an aerial show and be dazzled in some way. Whether its an acrobatic Spider Man aerialist entertaining children in a family circus or an aerial Piano Player….Yes a flying Piano, you heard that correct.
Take a look at just 10 of our favourite aerial shows and performers from all over the world. In no particular order of course as there is a massive amount more that we could talk hours about.
#1 The Aerial Spider – Lets start with the scary stuff shall we.
The Aerial Spider is a mixture of a few different skills including contortion. Created by an extremely talented aerial and circus performer the aerial spider or aerial net as its also known, is perfect for Halloween themed events and functions as it is as creepy as it is graceful.
#2 Aerial Bartenders – Drinks from above
Aerial Bartenders are an alternative to a full blown aerial show. These beautifully skilled aerial performers provide a different and unique experience in the way of meet and greet bartending from above. We have been lucky enough to be served by a waitress that descended from the ceiling to present a glass of champagne. what could be more memorable than having your welcome drink served by what would seem like a floating waitress.
#3 The Flying Piano – Music to fly for
So you remember me saying about that flying pianist? Well heres the proof! I say that like its the most random thing for an aerial performer to do whilst suspended high above the crowds….it isn’t however, it is one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring. Using a 3d rigging system, the same one they use in motion pictures and stage shows, this aerial performance provides something for everyone in the way of aerial acrobats and musical brilliance.
#5 Heliosphere Aerial Balloon Show – No lead in this performance
Heliosphere is an extremely popular show and a favourite of our clients due to its presence in the air. The show truly is one to watch and is easy to see why it gets booked at events all over the globe. Not only can this aerial balloon show dazzle and amaze at corporate functions but it has also been seen in the streets above the heads of children and adults alike creating a memorable spectacle that many enjoy a great deal. It has also been a hit with clients look to launch products as the balloon can be branded in many ways, one of the shows many useful and yet extremely entertaining uses.
#6 Sway Poles – Thank God for public liability insurance !
Who ever said that aerial shows and performances had to be from the ceiling down? These guys decided to throw the rule book out the window when they thought to create this act. The swaying poles acrobatic show is brought to you from one of the oldest Circuses in the USA and really is something……Extreme! Did I mention the performers switch poles midair? No? ok well that is what they do and it is one of the most insane climaxes to an aerial performance I think I have laid eyes on.
I would love to of been a fly on the wall when some crazed circus folk had this idea!
#7 Aerial Drone Show – Lets take it futuristic
Lets face it if you take an incredible aerial performer and add some intelligent light shows its incredible, its modern and its current. So then you take a drone strapped with a high quality Go Pro and you have a show that brings your guest closer than ever to the performance. This brilliant technoligy driven aerial show is a perfect blend of acrobatics and futuristic entertainment.
Not only is this performance great for a corporate function such as a gala dinner or charity event. We expect this to be extremely popular for technoligy based entertainment for exhibitions and product launches. With the use of 3d projection mapping this show is easily transformed in something completely bespoke and branded towards your company.
#8 The Ice Garden Carousel – No Rigging? No problem!
The ice garden acrobatic show is a perfect blend of cleverly choreographed acrobatics and acrobalance performed on a revolving Carousel. There are also various other themes that this act can under take such as the summer garden for summer themed events which can be used for acrobatic performances and also champagne pouring for meet and greets. And also the giant snow globe where the acrobats perform inside a giant revolving snow globe.
#9 Parachute Regiments – From the stratosphere to your venue
