My Aerial Home put on a dazzling fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care on Saturday and I had the pleasure to photograph the very talented aerial performers. The Theme of Circus 70’s was brilliantly captured in the flamboyant costumes. Ziggy, Elton and Joni made appearances and captivated the audience with their skills on trapeze, hoop, silks and silk sling. Humourous and beautiful routines with a distinctly sexy edge. Such fun to photograph!
Trapeze and the aerial arts are exploding into the public realm and for very good reason. I did a few courses with My Aerial Home a while back and really, really enjoyed my time on the trapeze. It was great for building strength physically and also mentally. I found myself trusting in myself bodily and emotionally much more fully and this really developed me as a person. If you get a chance, give it a go as you will discover an inner quietness and strength that is truly marvellous.
