AIDA footage

We are having a wonderful time onboard the AIDAsol!  It’s a delight to perform in shows with such high production value, and with such a talented cast.  We put together a short demo video with footage from our various acts on the ship.  Hope you enjoy!

“The Language of Chance” receives a glowing review

Our recent creation with the Acrobatic Conundrum, “The Language of Chance,” received a glowing review from the Huffington Post.

“Everyone in this troupe is a star, and yet each character also steps back to support the others in some feats of daring that left me continually wondering, “how can a person do such a thing with their body?” Thus, I consider The Language of Chance to be a perfectly performed and staged show filled with every human emotion.”

New demo of “Language of Chance”

February 1, 2015

We just finished up a residency at SANCA (School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts) with The Acrobatic Conundrum and are whole-heartedly enjoying the first run of “Language of Chance,” an evening of new circus works.  Check out this new demo of the show and see if you can spot us:

The show is running in Seattle through February 8th, then we will be taking it on the road for a West Coast tour in March and April!  Stay tuned for more dates.

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays, folks!  We’ve had a busy season here, as usual around this time of the year.  10865795_873084546047496_2627733808866449947_o

In early November, we performed both as a duo and with the Acrobatic Conundrum at the first ever Vancouver CircusFest, which was a wonderful experience!  We hope to be able to return in the future!

We had a big project Thanksgiving weekend, wherein the Acrobatic Conundrum’s show, A Book is not a Ladder, came to Portland and was presented by the Circus Project!  It was a wonderful melding of our communities – the Circus Project is where we coach and train here in Portland, the Acrobatic Conundrum is our ensemble, contempoary circus adventure, and we performed at the Echo theater, which is where we both got started training in the circus arts decades ago!



Since then, we’ve been grateful to have some down-timefrom performing, wherein we’ve been updating our straps act and continuing to train for the next level of skills.

We’ve had a smattering of wonderful holiday gigs with Animate Objects Physical Theater – next up is a flashy New Year’s Eve event at a casino!

Stay tuned for news about our West Coast Tour with the Acrobatic Conundrum!  Until then, have a restful and joyful holiday season!

Acrobatic Conundrum

Acrobatic Conundrum

We have been so excited to work with the Acrobatic Conundrum this summer for a new contemporary circus creation, entitled “A book is not a cover,” inspired by the Library of Babel by Jorge Luis Borges. We have the honor of working with renown choreographer KT Niehoff on this piece, and are fully enjoying the opportunity to explore the intersections of contemporary dance and acrobatics.

Interested in supporting contemporary circus in the States? We are running an Indiegogo campaign to help us take the show to New York, and we would be so very grateful for your support!
