Experience
Russian Cradle
(Apr.08.2016+)


The cradle (also known as aerial cradle or casting cradle) is a type of aerial circus act in which a performer hangs by his or her knees from a large rectangular frame and swings, tosses, and catches another performer. The aerialist being swung is referred to as a flyer, while the one doing the tossing and catching is referred to as a catcher or caster. The flyer usually starts and ends standing on the frame above the catcher. The flyer swings holding on to the catcher's hands, performs releases at the top of the swing, and is re-caught in mid-air. The frame can be static or swinging. A variant called Russian Cradle - what you see here - has the catcher standing, secured by a safety belt.

And then... the scarabs take to the scene. The artists are thrown between three Russian Cradle stations placed at an unprecedented distance from each other. A universe is created in which high-flying and bouncing come together, as if it were the most natural thing in the world, in a single breathtaking act.
