Most people don’t become aerialists after a career in classical singing. Then again, Elizabeth Munn is not most people. After discovering circus on a whim, Elizabeth combined the artistic rigor of classical singing with her background in dance and physical theater to become an innovative, multidisciplinary storyteller–several dozen feet off the ground!
This talented artist has performed frequently for 2 Ring Circus and Lisa’s Bright Ideas, as well as at The Bridges, Galapagos Art Space, TAO Downtown, Parkview Lounge, Duane Park, La Sala at Cantina Royal, Dixon Place, Coney Island USA and The Slipper Room. Keep up with Elizabeth Munn on her website, Instagram, and YouTube channel!
The development of aerial silk acrobatics is attributed to one “André Simard, an acrobatic research and development specialist for the world famous Cirque du Soleil” (Aerialists.org). He was interested in combining his interests in gymnastics and fine arts, and so he taught acrobats to be, simultaneously, formidable athletes and emotionally compelling performers.
