2010 Holiday Show Photos by Lauren Goldberg

Hey Everybody! Hope you’re all having a fabulous new year so far!

We’re busy rehearsing for our upcoming two-week run in Manhattan at the Connelly Theater. It’s a brand new show called… Subterranea: An Urban Fairytale. More on that here.

But the real reason for this post, is that we have just received a small batch of images that were taken by photographer Lauren Goldberg at our 2010 holiday show: Under The Tree.

Thanks again for a great job Lauren! Can’t wait to see the rest!

Angela and Uri’s Wedding, July 16, 2010

Congratulations to Angela and Uri on their wedding!

Suspended Cirque’s Angela and Uri got married yesterday in DUMBO, with the NYC skyline and Bridges as a stunning backdrop. The reception was at the adjacent Galapagos Art Space, where Suspended Cirque has made its home for the last year+.

Kristin Olness played clarinet during the ceremony, and Michelle Dortignac did an aerial performance at the reception. Ben Franklin and Joshua Dean could not attend, as they are performing up in Connecticut all summer in a fabulous production of Carnival. We miss you guys!

Here are a few photos of the beautiful preparations at the Galapagos Art Space and the wedding ceremony by the riverside.

(Video of Michelle’s performance can be seen below all the pictures.)

Here’s a video of Michelle’s performance for Angela and Uri:
