Acrobatics

Sol'Air Company

Since 2000 Sylvia Idelberger has been playing her performances as an aerial acrobat in many countries. She discovered her love for acrobatics when she was just twelve years old while doing art gymnastics. By training with multiple private trainers at various circus schools, she has been able to expand her repertoire with a versatile program in the air.

The Sassy Jassy Sisters

A premier this summer - high in golden silks - dancing on the swing music of the twenties!
We have been researching the role of women in the history of the circus for years. This time we were attracted by air ballet in the tissue.
The first companies of aerial acrobats consisted of groups of sometimes 100 dancers hanging side by side on ropes and dancing graceful choreographies. 
We resume these forgotten traditions, thus creating synchronised aerial art on silks. We created a contemporary retro and nostalgic style!

It is a nice summer day. An elegant woman in red and an old-fashioned suitcase, also in red, meet for the first time. And as incredible as it may sound, there evolves between them a game, inspired by dance and acrobatics. 
The Flying Suitcase is rich in visual and artistical impressions. A short but thrilling story about love, power and friendship.

Sphère Céleste

A lonely being is living on a trapeze barre. She is surrounded by beautiful white tissues. Whilst on her barre céleste she moves and flowes curiously over a seemingly empty plastic bubble. Suddenly, inside the bubble awakens a living creature. With striking mime and spiritual dancing the creature discovers the person above her. A interplay of dance begins - Sphère Céleste - in which attraction and distance bring two worlds together. Two unique acts come together in this show and merge into a never before seen show.   

Tendance

Duet in the net:

Tendance symbolises the symbiosis of life. 
Everything is running and everything is moving! Two bodies look like one, move like one and are one.
And yet the individuals differ. As their identity grows and grows, their differences become more visible. And... they complement each other. 
High in the air they support each other. Neither can or will let go. 
About harmony and movement.
About equality and differences.
About bondage and freedom. 

Also possible with tissues.

ZOOM

Back to nature or should we leave it alone?

A parable about how nature and sustainability are turned upside down or, respectively, up in the air. 
The air artists of SOL'AIR tell in an unconventional way their ideas of daily life and the reality in dealing with our environment and that it is actually too good to be true. Comical, artistic and elegant!    Zoom Sol'air grond- en lucht acrobatiek

Styles

A co-production by Sylvia Idelberger-Sol-Air and Esther van Gorp-Hoogspanning.
Suitable as an indoor and outdoor spectacle. 


Back-Up-Theater

Comfortable

It can't be any other way: cooking outside leads to thin air. In this crazy show, three headstrong chefs set the table themselves and present their new recipe. Gradually their imagination runs away with them. From Zorro to the Statue of Liberty, terrorists and Mary, Ghostbusters and Chinese Lions, to knife throwing and Superman. 
Everything passes by in rapid speed when they set the table. 
With flashy chases, spectacular stunts, dynamic acrobatics and comical slapstick, they keep the audience captivated. 
A three-dimensional haute-cuisine spectacle with comfortable stunt work and a pinch of salt.

Circus Klomp

Comical Acrobats from Dutch Soil

Meet the farming couple Driekus and Bertha! Dressed in traditional costumes, they present a circus act or fun animations that cleary come from the Dutch countryside. Hereby they try to outwit each other through all kinds of acrobatic tours. Jumping, running, colliding and all sorts of acrobatics will be flying around. 

In De Klompendans, the public is involved in all kinds of cheerful rituals of the circus farm: a chair dance on top of table pig Dirk, a wild rodeo with iron horse Rinus or a klompendans (clogging) with crazy cow Martha. And of course there is always time for a sweet kitchen romance or perhaps even a sexy trapeze act in the henhouse. 

In the same Dutch setting, Circus Klomp provides round-the-clock animations and circus workshops. These workshops are combined with folkloric games of skill.
