We are so happy to announce that Cavalia’s Odysseo will be heading to our hometown of Portland, OR as the next city! We can’t wait to combine those two worlds that we love. We were flattered to be the focus of a Portland Tribune article around the show, read it here: ‘Couple soars in Cavalia’s Odysseo’

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!

“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.”

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, folks! We’ve had a busy season here, as usual around this time of the year.
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!
We are so looking forward to performing at the upcoming CircusFest in Vancouver, B.C. November 6-9. We will be performing our duo straps act in the late-night cabaret as well as performing our new full-length show, A Book is not a Ladder with the Acrobatic Conundrum!
Passes to the festival are on sale now!
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!
And here is a fun behind-the-scenes video of our rehearsal process:
