This year, Harken began an exciting new partnership with talented acrobat Adilson Santos, who specializes in aerial performance using bungee straps. Eager to keep pushing the boundaries of acrobatic performance art with his exceptional routines, he approached Harken Industrial for assistance.
Adilson required a high-strength pulley that would roll freely under load and was certified for human suspension. Harken Industrial supplied him with the Harken Black Magic® Air® block, which surpassed Adilson’s expectations and fulfilled all his performance needs.
Adilson continues to raise the bar in aerial acrobatics and was asked to perform at last week’s prestigious international festival of circus skills and acrobatics. The 13th China Wuqiao International Circus Festival is held in Shijiazhuang, the capital city of Hebei province, which is renowned as the birthplace of acrobatics. Boasting over 30 shows and more than 200 participants from 18 different countries, the week-long celebration of circus acrobatics promotes the development of these arts, while hosting an international acrobatic performance competition.
Adilson was presented with the Excellence Lion Prize at the festival, awarded for his contribution and commitment to the development of aerial acrobatics. Harken Industrial continues to support Adilson in his exceptionally impressive performances, and offer a huge congratulations on this extraordinary achievement.
