Experience
Static Trapeze
(2010+)


Like two lovebirds, a young man and woman tease, play and sulk in an innocent game of seduction and eventually intertwine their bodies in a lighthearted vertical dance of fresh, unusual movements and lifts.

Like two lovebirds, a young man and woman tease, play and sulk in an innocent game of seduction accompanied by the soft rolls of ocean waves. After spilling onto the island in an inflatable raft, they eventually intertwine their bodies in a lighthearted vertical dance of fresh, unusual movements and lifts using nothing but a trapeze bar, a hand, and their feet.

The presentation is simple, the music light, and the costuming fair, but the image and scene that follows is simply one of joy. Kudos to Cirque du Soleil for having the gumption to include a "not so serious act" minus the chickens (re: Corteo) that works on all levels of emotions. For me, this number is easily one the finest of the entire show in terms of content (the unicycle girls have to be the best overall).
