Working at one of my favourite festivals in 2008, we hired a gorgeous Big Top and filled it with a roller disco, sumo wrestling, music, jump rope workshops, Geisha Makeovers and, of course, some circus.
The first year saw Ryan Styles as a smoking Mount Fuji, aerial by Roxy Velvet, hula hoop by Zpark, Chinese Pole by Gemma and Thelma, aerial by Joanna Pacheco and Eleonora Dall’Asta. A kamikazee plane had crashed into the bar, the saké flowed and we saw the sun rise.
The second year I ran the cabaret as the Kamikaze turned into more of a music venue. Acrojou performed their gorgeous German Wheel, Alana Jones on the tightwire, Ilona Jannti’s beautiful aerial and a passionate pole duet from Cirk Extempore. Less saké this year due to being pregnant!
