Hey, can anyone tell me anything about the "Tissu" (I've also seen it called "Aerial Silk") act? It's the one where the performer does all the cool aerial stuff while dangling from two pieces of material. I've seen the fabric for sale on a couple of different websites, but a performer once briefly told me that they use pure polyester. I'd be afraid to just go to the fabric store and try it, however, because I know that there are various weights and such. So, does anyone have experience with this act and can give me the straight scoop on where to get the material to do this safely? Also, I've seen websites that teach basics on all different circus acts, but never one for this act. Any advice on where to learn? A recommended book perhaps? Thanks!

You should get the real stuff along with the proper safety equipment. They have supplied stuff to Cirqeu Du Soleil, Cirque Sublime and others. Don't go chincy when it comes to this type of act and your safety.

Oh yeah, if you want to hook up with other performers of this type, and with others who are also learning, join Cirque Du Soleil club at http://www.cirquedusoleil.com . Go onto the forums. Lots of people from the states who are in various stages of learning.
