Suspended Cirque sends a huge, giant THANK YOU to everyone who came out to see our three performances of URBANOPOLIS!

We couldn’t have done this without the support of our friends and families, our community of aerialists and performers, the Galapagos Art Space and staff, and the extended group of old and new fans. Thank you and thank you, again and again!

Below are a few more assorted images from the URBANOPOLIS show. (We’ll have a photo gallery page up for the whole show real soon.)

URBANOPOLIS: First Night

WOW!!! Urbanopolis’s first night was so exciting, we had a blast performing it tonight!

Thank you to the so many, many people who came to Galapagos Art Space this evening. (Michelle’s sister Angie came all the way from Denver, CO to see the show!)

There are two more shows — Saturday at 3PM, and Sunday at 7:30PM — hint, hint!

Here are a few assorted shots that Kenny took from his seat:
