Description

Revealing in the sometimes creepy characters she creates on stage, Surreal De Sade is a Nebraskan who made a name for herself in the alternative circus community in Portland, Oregon. She is an aerial ballerina, creating elaborate dance maneuvers suspended 20 feet in the air. When she returned to Omaha to earn a Masters Degree, Surreal joined forces with a newly formed circus troupe, FreakWorks. Here she talks about the art of aerial acrobatics.
