"Relation" by Rigolo
The performances of Suren & Karyna always captivate with their unique mix of beauty, movement, energy, technical skills and choreography. For the act “Relation” by Rigolo they developed the discipline of double rope performed on a pulley to new standards of aerial artistry. “Relation” by Rigolo was originally created by Mädir Eugster, director of Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque, together with Suren & Karyna as a scene in the 2014 stage performance Wings. “Relation” evokes different kinds of relationship – between mother and daughter, or the interaction of a couple – but touches more universally on the experience of finding the right and wrong paths in life. The act represents the constant ups and downs of real life, but also embodies trust, harmony and dedication.
Suren (Russia) and Karyna (Ukraine) are internationally recognised aerial artists, renowned for their extraordinary expression of complex tricks and choreography. Their graceful, powerful and seemingly effortless performances of aerial tango, straps and high wire have delighted audiences the world over. Previously they achieved a high level of acclaim with their aerial straps act in Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna. In 2015, the act “Relation” – created by director Mädir Eugster / Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque – was awarded two prizes at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain: The Trophée du Cirque du Soleil for performance and innovative artistic vision, and the Prix Spéciaux of the Jury.
“Relation” by Rigolo is performed either by Suren & Karyna or by Vlad & Irina. It has appeared at cabaret shows, on cruise ships, with Cirque du Soleil, and at special events.
