With two wheels that looked like they’d been pinched off a giant’s bicycle and two fearless French performers, this was the jaw-dropping acrobatics of Arcane.

Performing perfect flips, spins and somersaults on a nice steady platform would be difficult enough for most of us. Make that platform a moving, rolling structure and you add an entirely new level of complexity and skill.

Invented by trapeze artists Maxim Bourdon and Sebastien Bruas, Arcane’s wheel was much more than a mere prop. Like two spiders on a huge web, the daring duo clambered over the structure, expertly propelling it around the stage. As the performance progressed, the tricks got riskier as the wheel became the inspiration for excitingly dangerous and original feats that transfixed the crowds in Waitangi Park.
