The abundance of fall is represented by the harvest colours and details of the
costumes as five unicyclists juggle metal bowls in an astounding display of agility,
balance, synchronized control and physical grace, tossing the bowls with their
feet – sometimes over their shoulders – and catching them on their heads
without using their hands.
The abundance of autumn falls upon us next, represented by the warm
browns of harvest. Five unicyclists come to the island to juggle metal
bowls in an astounding display of agility, balance, synchronized
control and physical grace. They toss the bowls with their feet -
sometimes over their shoulders - and catch them on their heads without
using their hands!
Details in the costumes of the five unicyclists help show this change.
Although their stylized tutus transform them into flirty ballerinas,
each unicyclist has her own look. The base costumes are printed in
earth tones featuring seed pods, flowers, trees and leaves with small
details sewn onto them, such as bolts, screws, feathers, and insects
in an array of patterns to keep the spark of individualism.
