After working for several years as russian cradle duos Rafael and Blancaluz, and Mark and Laura decided to join together and push the limits of aerial acrobatics with a new apparatus, the porteur parallel. Two catchers work in tandem to launch flyers eight meters above the ground. Acrobatic figures can be done in front, behind, and above the apparatus.
The porteur parallel consists of two freestanding structures, no floor anchors or guy wires are necessary. We use safety mats but there are no safety lines, eliminating the need for overheard rigging.
