Tis the season to be Training 😬🤘.
We have recently begun training an entirely new Circus Skill - Tight Wire Walking!
Thanks to a successful Residency proposal with the Circus Factory, and investment in Unicycle's premium Free-Standing Tight Wire Rig, we have been able to begin training in this discipline with professional mentor Tony Mahon of Acrophobia.
We have now also been lucky enough to be selected for Galway Circus' spectacular summer event Lifeline. LifeLine is Europe's largest highwire spectacle performed over the River Corrib and Claddagh Basin in Galway City. Staged on 7 highwires and featuring a cast of 150 people of all ages and backgrounds, audiences will witness a stunning display of strength and resilience over one of Ireland’s most iconic waterways.
With many thanks to @circusfactorycork & @galwaycircus, but, most of all, huge thanks to Mr. T-Bone Tony himself @acrophobiacircus for the patient persistence... x
