Heliosphere


Spiralling and spinning and seemingly weightless, an acrobat suspended beneath a helium balloon explores the uncharted space between street level and rooftops.

Using music, lighting and the location, the Heliosphere creates the illusion of flying. The impossible becomes possible.

On a calm day our aerial dancer can fly out of the sky, steal the sugar lumps from a café-goer’s saucer and swoop from just overhead to twenty metres in a moment... carrying someone’s hat.

At night the Heliosphere becomes a giant colour changing lantern.

First performed in 1998 (for an Acrobat Productions event) since when it has performed in 46 countries around the world, averaging 60 shows per year.
