meet Duo Filamental

Duo Filamental is a female trapeze duo who work seeks to embody their feminine effervescence, while seamlessly threading in dynamic movement. Their style reflects the duel meaning of filament, being both electric and organic. Interweaving the porter’s background in contemporary dance with the flyer’s joy of being airborne, they create enthralling works of circus art that are as powerful as they are playful.

Hayley and Rachel met while studying at Oberlin College where, to their surprise, they both fell in love with circus. They began working as a duo in 2015 and their natural inclination towards collaboration led them to seek further coaching in Chicago. While they began their career working on aerial cradle, they were soon drawn to duo trapeze for its simplicity and versatility. Today they perform and teach duo trapeze throughout the Midwest and are expanding their duo vocabulary onto other aerial apparatuses. CV and references available upon request.
