Allie Cooper’s Vertical Rope

Given the backgrounds of most of us Circus Geeks – at least the more prolific of us writers – I sometimes feel we overlook some of the other circus skills that are out there. Today’s lesser talked about circus skill: Corde Lisse.

This is Allie Cooper. She’s a rope artist based in California whom I met at a circus party some time last year. She’s very lovely and put together one of the most enjoyable promo videos for her rope act that I’ve seen. In some ways it reminds me of Danny MacAskill’s Way Back Home.

You can also follow Allie on twitter.

Have you seen other promo videos that are striking, unique or different? Let us know in the comments below.

You, Me & The Circus

You, Me & The Circus is a fantasy, drama, musical in the vein of some the great writer/directors of screen and stage, Frederico Fellini (8 1/2), and Bob Fosse (All That Jazz, Chicago, & Cabaret). You, Me & The Circus is an intimate story about four people falling in and out of love told over an afternoon of intense conversation, soul searching, and new discoveries revealed on a journey leading to an undeniable truth. – Taken from IMDB

Note: It may or may not contain actual circus but does have credits that include acrobat, circus artist, clown and stilt walker. I wouldn’t hold out too much hope for much circus though but if you like films maybe you’ll like it anyway.
