With tricking, hand-to-hand, free running, dancing, juggling, tumbling, aerial hoop, cyr wheel, banquine, breakdancing, hand balancing, trampoline and more we transformed this desolate yet decadent space into a thriving hub of movement and creativity.

Circus performer Angelica Bongiovonni rides a Cyr wheel in Cirque Éloize. According to their site, Bongiovonni is one of around 100 acrobats that practice the Cyr wheel in circuses, street performances, and performing art schools around the world. Regarding her first attempt at riding, she explains:
It really wasn’t fun. [laughs] It’s kind of like learning how to walk again or ride a bike. It’s a really weird feeling and I just fell all the time. I had so many bruised hips and knees. I’d lose control of the wheel and almost hurt people in the studio. I actually hit myself in the face and got a huge busted lip… It takes hour and hours of practice…
Video cameras have been attached to hula hoops, trombones, and Fijian crab lairs, but this is the first time we’ve seen one do a kickflip backside lipslide (at 1m02s in slow motion). Watch what it’s like to be pro skater Dean-Paul Denniston’s board.
Who knew that bunny show-jumping was a thing? This 2012 Vice report from the Rabbit Grand National in Harrogate in Yorkshire, England is full of ear-flopping, high-jumping excellence.
