I first worked with Erika Lemay in a show in Venezuela many moons ago. She must have been about 16 – coltish, a little awkward, and very sweet, performing on fabrics and duo straps. WELL. Gone is the awkwardness, and in it’s place is pure, unadulterated brilliance – VA-VOOM! She is one of my all-time favorite lyra performers – have a look at the video and you’ll see why. Bravo, Erika! Love and pull-ups, Laura
PS – aerial students & fledgling aerialists – look at how beautifully put together this act is. NOTHING is an afterthought – her (composed) music, costume, choreography, right down to her hair – combines to create a very specific picture.
