Cloudswing - Corde Volante
Dynamic Cloudswing is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. The pendulum motion soaring high above you guests with twists and drops will demand their attention, with no one wanting to look away. With this gravity defying skill prepare to be mesmerised where each new trick builds into a jaw dropping finale.
Trained by Rita Van Opzeeland at the National Centre of Circus Arts. My passions for creating unique tricks and techniques in swinging can’t be missed.
Lennin McClure has worked with the company on many projects as a performer within a wide range of community projects. He has performed as part of devised work in theatre settings and also has proved himself to be a great improviser within informal, outdoor projects. Zoe Seaton Big Telly
“Arlene Phillips and Lennin Nelson-McClure combine to choreograph movement, dance and circus acrobatics together in one wild party” Mary Conway (Morning Star)
Loop - Static Cloud
Loop also known as Hammock or sling. Ideal from 2 meters height, this circus skill is perfect for intimate venues. Loop either silk, rope or net is perfect for any themed event you may be hosting. Full act or just ambient hang-about (e.g. champagne pouring), Loop will dazzle your audience up close, twisting, dropping, turning can set up your event letting your auidence enjoy the night.
I performed silk loop in the Bridge theatres award winning production ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ over Summer 2019 and rope loop at NCCA Summer 2018
I’ve been performing aerial silks for many years, displaying strength and flexibilty while in the air. Although usually performed at height, if you have a more intimate venue (3 meteres) the tailored act will take your auidences breathe away with daring conotortion tricks. Dynamic acts including wraps, twists, drops and gravity defying positions, your auidence will watch in wonder and agree it was a highlight of any event
Silks can be tailored from length, theme, costume and music to certain tricks, wraps and drops.
“Overall a strong professional perfomer who can work with others and as a solo artist with a great use of space and ability to work an audience effortlessly with a high skill act”. (Sarah Mac Keeever founder of Puredance)
“As an aerialist, working with Lennin as my counterweighter was a favourable experience. Lennin has the benefit of being an aerialist himself, so he has the advantage of being able to have a very understanding and relatable relationship with whoever he is counterweighting. He is certainly a very trustworthy, safe and compassionate counterweighter.” Levi Wotton (Aerialist)
