Ladder type: Copper Ladder, Pole Ladder
Used for: Uzeyer Novrusov climbs an unsupported copper ladder and traverses the stage in what can only be described as an action packed set. It’s basically ladder aerobics but also so very much more that. Sadly as with most circus acts it has to be seen to understand it better.
How many different web pages is this ladder image on: 24,000+
Where is it: Denmark
The teeterboarder ends his wild triple somies and airborne pirouettes by landing so precisely on the see-saw board as to throw his opposing acrobat up in the air for a competitive feat. Women hang from rings, ropes and chandeliers by nothing but a neck or an ankle. Girls’ extended bodies are passed head over heels like relay batons from one high-bar hanger to the next. The ladder artist (Uzeyer Novrusov) that is the main point of this post, does a handstand atop a two-point ladder to nowhere. The technical skill is always married to beautiful images. The large, perfectly balanced Cyr wheels, in which acrobats stretched like wheel spokes tumble and spin, create blurred time-defying shapes in the air. Likewise, the shapes spun out by the jugglers’ sparkling pins and glowing rings create the sense of exceptional events on a celestial plane. Often the clown’s afterlife proceeds on two levels: earth and sky. Angels aloft serve both as guides and prop masters. Sounds like a great night out to us.
