As a duo Emma McGovern & Allie Wilde perform
Setallite - Double Tissus Loop
Two performers hang and balance from each other suspended in a loop of fabric. The fabric is attached to a 1.5 metre bar and rigged from 2 points.
Strength, grace, beauty and poise are all embodied by this aerial duo as they perform in a cradle of fabric, a double tissus loop. A stunning juxtaposition of classic lines and contemporary form. Precision timing yields perfect synchronicity in this sensuous aerial ballet.
A seamless aerial ballet, beautifully choreographed and performed with great synchronicity, strength and grace.
As soloists they perform
Performed upon a single hanging rope. The aerialist climbs,wraps and unwraps themselves, executing a series of fast drop tricks, combined with strength and precision manoeuvres.
Lyra (Aerial Ring):
This act is performed within, and around, a suspended metal hoop. The aerialist executes static & spinning manoeuvres, requiring a combination of great flexibility and strength. A graceful yet dynamic act., which can be performed at a lesser height than other aerial acts. The Lyra can prove to be a spectacular solution in situations where the rigging points are low.
A Cloud Swing is a piece of rope, the ends attached to the rig at two separated points. The aerialist stands in the center of the ‘U’ shape and generates a high swing, executing daring tricks & manouevres at the high points of both ends of this swing. An unusual, thrilling and unexpected act!
Two sheets of fabric suspended from one overhead point. As with corde lisse (see above), the performer climbs and wraps themselves within the fabric – but this act places greater emphasis on grace and contortion.
