When the Gold Unit is in Biloxi, Mississippi over the Fourth, there’s always a ticket exchange between the Beau Rivage’s annual summer circus show. This year’s show YAYE was definitely aerialist-heavy and of all the circusarts, that’s my favorite thing to watch. It’s so different to see circus acts in a theatre setting as opposed to RBBB’s 270-degree arena shows.
The opening act was breath-taking, a duo strap/cloud swing act!
Beautiful, emotive, powerful, and extremely sexy.
The lighting for this act made it easy as sin to get some dramatic shots. If you haven’t looked at much of my photography work yet you’ll find out quickly that I abuse backlighting. I can’t help it though; for people and circus performers in particular, backlighting highlights body shapes in a flattering and beautiful way.
I just scoured the internet looking for information about these two, but any searches about this show seem to lead me down a hole of ticket sales and generic press releases. If you know anything about who these folks are please mention so in the comments. I will ask around and try to get these images to them.
