Note - performances at 2.45pm and 4.55pm
Avital & Jochen met in Bristol whilst studying aerial arts with Mike Wright. Since 2010 they have travelled the world, performing at internationally renowned festivals such as Cirque De Demain in Paris where they won a silver medal in 2014. Cirque Bijou are delighted to invite them back to headline the circus stage in 2018.
Avital and Jochen’s bond and joy of performing make the couple a unique and exciting pair to watch. After so many years away they are excited to be back where it all started. They are performing a beautiful and heart-stopping doubles swinging trapeze performance at 4.55pm.
Avital performed straps in public for the first time ever over 10 years ago with us at Bristol Harbour Festival aided by a development award from Cirque Bijou. More than a thousand shows later she's back, mesmerising to watch, with a piece full of raw performance that has touched and inspired audiences all over the world.
