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:

Swingin' at Jack's Gets Rave Review on Broadway World

Gabrielle Sierra at Broadway World has posted a wonderful review of our currently running show “Swingin’ at Jack’s.”

Some great excerpts:

“The members of Suspended Cirque work their multi-talented butts off singing, dancing, and acting, so when you realize that they are also fully capable of twisting on ropes while suspended from the ceiling, well, it is just too cool.”

“One of the best acts is called “Girls Out On A Limb”. During this number all three ladies take to the trapeze, swinging in unison or succession, holding on to one another for vital support. I can’t even imagine the strength it takes to hold yourself up on a rope while also holding another woman by your ankles, but they do it with ease.”

“Swingin’ At Jacks’ provides the ideal mix of circus, theater, live music, and alcohol. The price is right, and the show is just long enough to act as your Sunday night’s main event or as a great starter to a longer evening.”
