One of the popular circus props I build is a freestanding lyra. I make several versions of this apparatus, ranging from a basic version built on top of an X-pole, to completely custom units. The basic premise is simple - mount a lyra on top of a pole. I made several of these over the years, and I wanted to share where one is being used.
Coco Austin is an actress, dancer and model. She recently created a company / production called Coco and the Vanity Vixens. As part of this amazing production, they incorporated my freestanding lyra, performed on by the beautiful and talented Sarah Kaye. Here is a clip from the promo video from their show -

For this production, we made a shorter pole height (to accommodate the low ceilings) as well as set to pole to static, so it did not spin. The X-Pole is a great base for the freestanding lyra, as it is incredibly stable, and can be used in a variety of ways. So if you are looking for something designed especially for you, or the X-Pole version, drop me a line, or give me a call. I'm happy to help you create something amazing!
