BB Acrobalance Cabaret
Fresh from their sold-out Vegas tour, these 2 seasoned performers are delighted to present a heady mix of glamour and danger that guarantees to leave their audience gasping. BB perform extraordinary acrobalance and acrobatics. Their unique circus acts are both exquisitely beautiful and uproariously funny. Always stylish and of the highest quality their shows are ideal for circus, street festivals, corporate functions and cabarets
A comedy involving small hair attachments and very big egos.
Man on a Pole
A simple and elegant piece of circus apparatus, the Chinese Pole, is the dramatic setting for this act. On top are handstand blocks.
A wonderful connection with the audience combined with a breathtaking display of athletism and nerve make this an edge of your seat performance. The handbalance 7 meters above the heads of the audience makes for a real heart stopping finale.
This act toured the UK for three months as part of NoFit State’s 2002 SciCircus show.
Duration of act is 6 minutes.
A minimum height of 5 meters is required and thorough rigging of the Pole needs to be discussed in advance. Where possible, a site vist undertaken in order to ascertain the suitability of the venue.
Adagio Winter Statues
On a glittering podium of snowflakes, these elegant characters slowly come to life. Their exquisite choreography fuses dance, stillness and slow-motion acrobatics to delight and enthrall all who come under their icy spell.
“They look so lifelike”
– Lord Sebastian Coe.
“As if to confirm that the whole show was going to be of exceptional quality, the second act on stage was BB. The male and female duo’s facial expressions as they went through their comedy adagio number were worth the price of the admission alone. A simply superb performance.”

– The Press
“…I think our event worked perfectly. Des was outstanding, the contortionist very entertaining, the acrobalance couple were subdued and romantic….”

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how wonderful the statue performers were at the Bristol Museum last Thursday. They were excellent, very nice people too! Our guests were blown away with them – most people didn’t even realise they were people at first which is a testament to their skills.”
