ADAM KUCHLER

A funny character piece by Adam Kuchler was a delight to the audience.

A ‘balloonatic’ on the loose. Adam gets sidetracked from his goal by the balloon.

Finally he gets his one arm balance accomplished. Amazing!

With her accordion behind her back she some how ends up on the floor trying to read her sheet music.

Amazing Amy is indeed the most amazing contortionist around.

Great strength and flexible body makes this woman the most Amazing!

Beautiful physical control and technique on the aerial act.

Sometimes the act took on a visual resemblance to a painting.
