Falling Up: Aerial Circus Kaka’ako
… was a wild success!
Over 125 people watched burlesque, aerial silk, trapeze, lyra, and acrobats fly around Kakaako Agora, all benefiting the Oahu Fringe Festival. Not yet certain how much we raised, but it was a never seen before in Kaka’ako event and it was awesome.

On September 3rd, 2013, I fell while performing on an aerial silk. At nearly 15 feet high, I was lucky to only break my foot and so this event is my “I Didn’t Die,” celebration of good fortune.
