Failure Fantastico

, , ,

A flying hoop juggler aims for the most epic performance possible, and fails spectacularly!

This was my graduation act at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London.

They allowed me to cut my 6 minutes up into 3 short acts, that turned the scattered show into a more cohesive whole.

I made use of rigging, flying on ropes and a harness. There was fire, a balloon that popped with the help of a hidden modified remote controlled car, a fan, led hoops, and loads of confetti. All features of a show that make it very impractical to perform, but the NCCA was very supporting of my work.

It was a spectacle of a lifetime.

I would love to find a way to turn some of this wackiness into a show some day, call me if you want to help!
