I had only seen aerialists perform from far away. Seeing silks from up close made me realize how tough it is. Not only do you need the strength to hold up your body weight with those slippery hands, you also need to memorize and perfectly execute these little foot dances around the silks to form the knots. If you forget the order of your loops, or there isn’t enough tension in your silks and your knot doesn’t get formed properly, well… that’s when you regret having hardwood floors.
Thanks to both Meags and Amanda for the fun shoot!
