When one thinks of circus entertainment, their mind often jumps to images of the big top, trapeze artists flowing to and fro and a unicyclist traversing a high wire. In short, not the kind of entertainment that you can book at most events. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Circus entertainment can fit pretty much anywhere, you just have to be careful which acts you go for. With that in mind, here are five forms of circus entertainment for intimate surroundings.
Ali and Klodi
A form of acrobalance, Ali and Klodi are a world class duo that pull off amazing feats of strength that have to be seen to be believed. They have travelled all over the world with their act, a superbly choreographed and intimate showcase of dynamic lifts and powerful balances. Set to a stunning soundtrack that captivates guests of all ages, they are a great choice for any event with their passion and intensity shining through.
Juggling is one of those forms of entertainment that is synonymous with the circus. Not only can our acro-jugglers juggle balls, but they can also toss bowling pins, blocks and many other props besides. What makes them so special? An ability to also perform many acrobatic feats as well. As you can see from the photos, they juggle when stood on one another’s shoulders and if you watch long enough, you may see them backflip back to the earth!
Another group with ‘acro’ in their name, Acrochaps have performed at all of the finest event venues in London and the UK. A hugely popular trio, these gentlemen strongmen evoke the spirit of yesteryear appearing in Victorian-style leotards with the immaculately coiffured moustaches and personalities to match. Bravo. We can’t recommend Acrochaps enough so do book them for your intimate event and we promise that you won’t be disappointed.
The beauty of a fire performer is that ordinarily they can perform by themselves, needing only to light a couple of props to make for a stunning performance, especially as daylight disappears. You might be thinking that fire performers can only do their act outside, but many of our acts use special chemicals to ensure that they can astound guests inside as well! A breath-taking and timeless form of entertainment for any event.
We love a good hula show; there’s something absolutely mesmerising about the art form that has to be seen to be believed. Sure, we can also hula hoop around the waist for all of three seconds but these hula hoop performers bring together 10, 20, 30, 40 hoops all swinging in unison. Variants of the form abound with some involving LEDs and others even implementing a quick change effect whilst they spin. An incredible act to witness live, we videoed a recent performance at Café de Paris for your enjoyment!
