This is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a specially manufactured fabric or a rope. The artist climbs the fabric/rope, relying only on their training and skill to ensure safety. The apparatus is used to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions.
This refers to a trapeze or hoop act in which one or more artist move around the bar/hoop and ropes, performing a wide range of movements including balances, drops, hangs while the apparatus itself stays generally static. The difficulty on a trapeze/hoop is making this look easy.
This can be done on vertical (fabric/rope) or support apparatus (trapeze/hoop). It features two artists working together on the same apparatus to perform figures and bear each other's weight. A lot of time is spent developing trust and confidence in the partnership.
