It's choreographed chaos, it's musical madcappery, it's...Flying Not Falling!
Flying Not Falling have entertained audiences around North America, with their unique blend of juggling, clown, and musical comedy. When you need something fresh but backed by experienced professionalism, something out of the ordinary but accessible to any audience, a show that plays big but can fit in a Model-T, you're looking for Flying Not Falling!
The Flying Not Falling show is a one-stop vaudeville extravaganza. Performed without speaking for universal appeal, this stage show is fast paced and tightly choreographed to classic big band music.
With flexible structure and staging, the show can be tailored to any venue, from outdoor festivals, to corporate functions, to intimate cabarets. Ranging in length from 10 to 45 minutes, Flying Not Falling can even include a magician MC and live swing band for an authentic music hall experience.
Flying Not Falling will provide an entire evening of entertainment. This can include the group stage show up to 45 minutes in length, or individual performance pieces with clowns, magicians, roving entertainers, and live music throughout your event.
"Flying Not Falling were a HUGE success and were the perfect addition to our event. Not only were they amazing performers but great people as well. I really enjoyed working with them and found them to be accommodating, funny and genuinely nice." - Susanne Pengelley, Electronic Arts (Canada) Inc.
Flying Not Falling is:
Edgar - Jonathan Wiltse
Edgar is terribly important. He is determined to present a 'proper' show, but the others all too frequently hamper his artistic achievements. Fortunately Edgar is there to point them in the right direction.
Jonathan Wiltse has been performing for longer than he would care to admit. Known for his signature bowl-spinning act, Jonathan also plays a myriad of musical instruments. He juggles. He sings. He builds and designs props. He was clearly born in the wrong century.
Ivan - Iain Duncan
Ivan is really the star of the show. He is determined to garner as much applause and love as possible, preferably all for himself . Unfortunately for the ladies in the audience, he is obliged to share the stage at least some of the time.
Iain Duncan has been performing for over 20 years. His broad background in the arts encompasses juggling, saxophone, music composition, and contemporary dance. To the best of his knowledge, he is the only saxophonist who also balances his instrument on his head.
Cosmo - Melissa Aston
Cosmo is not entirely sure what's happening, but this being-determined business is definitely not for her! A show should be fun, even if it means an occasional surprise for everybody.
Melissa Aston has performed as a clown and juggler all across North America, for a really long time. She has even toured with Ringling Brothers Barnum and Baily Circus, living on a train with 11 other clowns. One of the few women to brave the Double Rola-Bola of Imminent Injury, she is also pretty deft with three hats.
