Heliosphere – Aerial Balloon Show | Exeter| South West| UK
Spiralling and spinning, the weightless Helionaut explores the uncharted space between street level and rooftops.
Using bi-directional harness, trapeze or cloud swing, the aerialist has maximum range of movement. Two ground crew harnessed to tether ropes, control the balloon’s speed, direction and altitude.
On a calm day the Helionaut can fly down from the chimney tops and steal the sugar lumps from a cafe-goer’s saucer. At night the Heliosphere becomes a giant lantern.
The Heliosphere can fly in any large outdoor or indoor space free from overhead obstructions. Under certain weather and wind conditions, they may not be able to operate…but they rarely have to cancel completely!
Standard Length of Performance: 20 minutes
