Counterweight Rope Duo
Aerial acrobatics, singing, dancing and acting, this act will entangle you in sensual world of romantic love and real danger. Using a unique apparatus, the counterweight rope, the audience witnesses an exploration of interdependence, reliance, and reaction.
The two performers are connected by a long rope, through 2 pulleys, each affected in every moment by the other. Balanced on the precarious and fragile strength of the human hand, without the other, one would fall and yet with the other, both can fly. Employing the wire techniques used in film stunts, the two dance, swing, jump, and fly, sweeping the space with dangerous beauty. The poetic story of this aerial dance is pulled into a third dimension when the audience realizes that the performer is singing live to his muse.
Entangled is an expression of beauty that is found in harmonizing conflict in human relations.
