Rope

  • What is Rope?

    Rope is a discipline within aerial acrobatics. A rope is rigged in the ceiling, and the artist performs their circus art while hanging.

    The rope has a diameter of approximately 3–4 cm, depending on the size of the artist's hands and preferences. The artist climbs, wraps themselves in the rope, hangs without holding onto it with their hands, or performs drops. The artist swings out, falls, and catches themselves in the rope at the last moment, very close to the ground. Rope artists are usually alone, but sometimes they can be. In such cases, a base often hooks themselves with their legs and lifts a flyer hanging up and down.
