Hangin' Tough

Every year, Moisture Festival brings high-quality aerial acts to the stage, showcasing physical strength along with beauty and charm. There are many different types of acts that fall under the "aerial" umbrella, such as trapeze, tissu, hoop, and swing. With so many different options, it is likely that even the most stoic of audience members will submit an "Ooooh" or "Aaaah" at one of the acts! Here are a couple new aerialist additions to this year's lineup that we think you might enjoy.
Eve Diamond Warren Zelman Photograpy

Eve Diamond was introduced to the circus arts through Circus Smirkus at the age of 13, and found herself mesmerized enough to keep it up through high school and college. Combining beauty and brawn, Eve has been all over the country as a student, performer, and teacher. She has performed and taught classes with Circus Smirkus and Emerald City Trapeze, trained at SANCA, and also trained at Ecole Leotard in Montreal with Victor Fomin. Her specialty is in aerial rope and cloud swing (both static and dynamic), but is also well-versed in trapeze, hoop, tissu, and partner acrobatics. Eve recently moved to Seattle, and we are happy to welcome her to our local Moisture Festival family. Her festival performance dates are available here.

Cassie Cutler also started performing at a young age, practicing and competing in the gymnastics world until the age of 16. After that, she found circus arts and discovered that she loved being upside down! With her specialties of aerial, hand to hand, and tumbling, Cassie has bounced all over the place, including Great America Theme Park, Knotts Berry Farm, Costa Rica, and Mexico. Alice, her trapeze, has gone on these adventures with her. Like Eve, Cassie has also taught classes at Emerald City Trapeze and trained at Ecole Leotard! We are so glad that she will be joining us for Moisture Festival this year. You can see her on the Broadway Performance Hall stage for burlesque and variete performances.

If aerial is your interest, make sure to also check dates and times for Camille Swift (especially if you missed her stunning performance last year!), Duo Rose, Nikole Gramm, and Duo Revê to name a few!
