Who: Isla & Open What: Catching an unneeded breath When: November 1st, 2 a.m. Where: Out back of the Hanged Man Warnings: TBD
It never failed to amaze people, how Isla could balance on such small surfaces, or how she and Lila could do such intense poses and be so small. Isla loved her acts in the Hanged Man, she got to show off her strength, grace, and flexibility, and the audience always ate it up.
Tonight, she'd done one of her high wire acts, performing tricks and keeping her balance on an extremely thin wire, strung between two poles and very high off the ground. Isla didn't look down, she kept her poise and let her muscles go through the movements. When she finally stepped off onto one of the platforms, she flashed the audience a smile and bowed, then shimmied down the pole to the ground.
She stepped out of one of the back tent flaps, enjoying the feel of the breeze on her skin. The Cirque was still in full swing, but she knew she could have a few quiet moments back here."
