Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOTS: HIGH ACTS # 1 RUDY BERG





Billy Barton once said in his Circus Report column that Mike & Hope Kent were the last of the High Acts, right away all the younger aerial acts were up in arms. What they didn't know was a High Act was a particular group of acts, most had Trapeze on one side of their high pole, and Rings on the other, some finished with a Swaypole on top, a High Dive, or a Slide For Life, as the one shown here. This is Rudy Berg, in photo #1 he is just finishing his walk up the incline wire, in #2 he is doing an upside down loop walk, in #3 a little sky dancing, & in #4 a neck slide, or possibly iron jaw.
