Spiralling, spinning and seemingly weightless, look up to see one of the world’s best aerial artists reaching for you, suspended beneath an illuminated sphere. Watch as they hover above, exploring the uncharted space between street level and rooftops.

Heliosphere is a show performed to music which is both aerobatic and interactive, to create the illusion of flying. Floating overhead like a mysterious astronaut, the aerial dancer could swoop down to the audience at any second to steal a hat, or swoop twenty metres into the sky in a heartbeat.

Heliosphere was first performed in 1998 and has since performed in 64 countries around the world, averaging 60 shows per year. Don’t miss this irreverent and awe-inspiring show at Birrarung Marr!
