Creating the illusion of flying, a helium filled balloon rises, falls and glides overhead, suspending a balletic aerialist below tumbling and turning from ground level to twenty meters. Height and direction are controlled by two ‘invisible’ crew attached to lines. 

It’s a spectacle to inspire, mystify and enchant, and to raise the profile of any event. This is well suited to day, but especially night performances with its internal colour changing light show. It can be used creatively as part of a larger spectacle, delivering the cup, greeting a VIP or just delighting children. Recent performances include Illuminite in Toronto, parties in Cairo, stadium appearances in the UK and overeseas and our Lightbulballoon for the Muse European stadium tour. Gold and silver covers for The Heliosphere are also available to add that extra touch of moon like sparkle.


Safe & Accessible

This act, along with every other act on our website, is expert in adapting to a variety of performance settings, including during the constrictions of the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic.

The performances will be tailored to the event and location to ensure that all interactions are socially distanced without compromising the joy and spectacle.
