Natural Wings (aerialist / acrobat / circus)

NATURAL WINGS has been one of WA's premiere aerial dance companies since 2005, creating spectacular shows of unparalleled skill, integrating intricate and unique choreography that is utterly mesmerising for all ages.

Multi Award Winning, Innovative, Spectacular! 

NATURAL WINGS specialises in outdoor, site specific shows which push the boundary of Aerial Dance and Circus Arts.

A great deal of attention goes to the choreography, costuming, musicality, and overall feel of every single moment to ensure each show is not only a spectacular piece of art, but it leaves the audience smiling, dancing, cartwheeling  - we aim to leave the audience moved. 

Rich in physical imagery, our shows can be seen at Major Arts Festivals as well as community events, balls, theatres, in iconic locations in the outback...

We are able to perform almost anywhere - and we do! 

Our vision is to make work that inspires us, and to make it accessible to all, regardless of age, culture or location

TESTIMONALS:

“Natural Wings show "Elements" took our festival by storm.  We featured the act, in the very heart of the festival where it was able to draw record breaking crowds, with it's naturally great sight lines and the incredible skill of the performers. What was most exciting for me was to have such a unique, beautiful and artistic show featuring all female performers win the festival's "People's Choice Award"!  Which just goes to show how well art can work on the street.” -  Mackenzie Mouldron, Entertainment Director, Toronto Buskerfest

“Elements was a beautiful show combining wind, water and sand with spectacular aerial acts and contemporary dance. Elements attracted approximately 2000 spectators on both nights and created a vibrancy amongst Forrest Place. The professionalism from Natural Wings performers and staff made the logistics of the event a breeze” -  City of Perth event co-ordinator Hayley Boneham

“Hints of Cirque du Soleil and contemporary ballet influence, with playful and suspenseful undertones. A mesmerizing display of acrobatic precision that enthralled the audience. 4.5 Stars” - The West Australian

“A blend of graceful strength, elegant movement, light-hearted interactions and infectious rhythms”  - Artshub 

“Natural Wings have developed their own magic that moves beyond circus skills and engages us in the intimate dialogue of contemporary dance. The choreography taps into experiences and feelings that lie in the spaces of our shared existence that are without words, beyond words and yet affect us deeply, more than the power of words” - Australian Stage 

“My friend and I saw your performance at Riverside Park in Bayswater yesterday. We just wanted to say how moved we were by your beautiful performance and how impressed we were with your skill and strength. It was truly inspiring” - Donna and Grace, Bayswater

“Elements is a beautiful and cohesive work which gently guides audiences through a full spectrum of emotion leaving them inspired and uplifted.” - Rebecca, Canada 

“I came across a Natural Wings show quite by accident, after heading into the Perth CBD one Friday night for a walk around with my 8 year old. I was blown away by it. It was acrobatics, gymnastics, theatre, art and awesome lighting all rolled into a very entertaining performance. The crowd loved it. As did my son. I was also so glad I had my camera with me that night.... they're awesome!” - Danny, Perth
