WHAT IS CORDE LISSE?
Corde lisse moves are normally a combination of held postures and drops using a rope that hangs from the ceiling. These ropes are normally made from soft cotton about 30-35mm thick.
It is possible for two (or more) people to perform on the same rope, although more than two is rare.
The performers can hang off each other or be at different heights on the rope.
The most famous use of aerial circus skills such as these has been for the BBC's test-card. Cirque du Soleil also uses corde lisse, aerial silks and trapeze in some of their shows. There are many schools and circus centers that teach rope throughout the world.
