Bespoke Shopping Centre Aerial Shows

 

Circus Suburbia created bespoke aerial shows for The Bentall Centre in Kingston, playing with space, colour and a connection with the audience.
 

Space, light, height.

Three silks rigged on different levels of the shopping centre created the illusion of aerialists performing at dizzying heights.

 

We collaborated with EdDance to create a synchronised swimming show to be viewed from different levels within the shopping centre.

 

The silks in the basement level were surrounded by dancers, so that shoppers viewing from above had a birds-eye view of the shapes and patterns made by the synchronised swimming inspired choreography.

Where Style Reigns
Regal Entertainment in the Royal Borough


Our second bespoke circus show for the Bentall Centre fosuced on their advertising campaign, Where Style Reigns.

 

A dramatic Maleficent music track drew the attention of shoppers to three regal queens in red, with choreography allowing the performers to make eye contact with shoppers and introduce the haughty characters. The next track changed the atmosphere again, bringing the energy of Alice in Wonderland's Red Queen to the dramatic drops and spins on silks.

 

The use of well known characters and soundtracks brought the centre's campaign to a family audience as they shopped throughout the Saturday.

Summer Breeze
Highlighting the International Youth Arts Festival in Kingston


Summer Breeze was a joyous celebration of the youth arts festival and summer time.

 

Two of our youth circus students who have been working towards becoming professional performers were given the opportunity to perform silks in the centre, without mats, giving them valuable experience and an amazing feeling.

 

We put Starfiz's unique Spinning Silks act in the circular promotions space which shoppers can see from almost every corner of the centre. The circular movements of the silks flowed beautifully as daring moves and elegant shapes entranced shoppers in a moment of calm.
