Biography

Spiralling and spinning and seemingly weightless, an acrobat suspended beneath a helium balloon explores the uncharted space between street level and rooftops. The Heliosphere is a show performed to music which is both aerobatic and interactive to create the illusion of flying.

The ground crew, harnessed to lines but largely unseen, control the balloon’s speed, direction and height. Working together, the three artists create a piece of overhead magic and on a calm day our aerial dancer can swoop out of the sky, steal the sugar lumps from a café-goer’s saucer and soar to twenty meters in a moment. Carrying someone’s hat. We have delivered the bridal bouquet, shaken the rock stars hand and carried away the champions cup in a packed stadium.

The Heliosphere show was first performed in April 1998 and coining the name from those mysterious bubbles in space, they have currently performed in 57 countries around the world, averaging 60 shows per year. They have experimented with covers, costume, branding, lighting and different sizes, shapes and fabrics and still creating new variations.

This is the original Heliosphere, beware imitations!
