Silks inside an inflatable Diamond in Istanbul

Just returned from Istanbul. I was performing silks at a wedding for the Dream Engine, only this time a little different...the silks were inside a giant inflated diamond! 

The Diamond rose to 11 meters with me all wrapped up inside my silks, hanging from the roof.

The location was stunning,  in the grounds of a converted Palace -  The Luxury Hotel Ciragan Palace, Kempinski Istanbul.

Henley Festival – Heliosphere at Henley on Thames

 I was working for the Dream Engine, performing along side acts such as Tom Jones and Jools Holland and countless street theatre performers at the exclusive Henley Festival 2011. An extraordinary and elegant mix of music, art, culture, dining and location.

Slightly windy conditions made for a challenging show, flying down the harbour front and over the water. Guests arrived in their black tie and posh dresses to watch the spectacle.

4 nights of shows in total to take place during the fireworks display…a true feast for the senses!

I had the pleasure of working on the all new "Clearsphere" on the final night.

25th Anniversary of the Port in Palma de Mallorca

Had the pleasure of working with Julien Marionnet from Paraddax Show in Palma de Mallorca.

The sun was setting over the ocean and the guests were arriving in their million dollar yachts to get a good view of the evenings event.  

 First a speech out on the furthest point of the port and a champagne toast followed by a candle lit dinner at the sea front restaurant.   

 The square in front of the restaurant had been done up full of floating fish; cleverly tethered together to give the illusion of being under water.

 The guests were then taken by surprise when this glowing sphere appeared from the horizon above a flying girl…

 We were to fly down the port off of two speed boats…a last minute plan B! An absolutely unforgettable experience flying above water...the views were incredible from up there!
