TEDxUSC - Troupe Vertigo - Circus Theater Performance

Circus is about people working together, says Aloysia Gavre, cofounding director of Troupe Vertigo Circus Theater and Cirque School L.A. with Rex Camphuis. They celebrate the art of acrobatics as free of competition, a skill of incredible focus, and an unmatched adrenaline rush. Troupe Vertigo's circus style is to "place something very ordinary and mundane ... upon an extraordinary skill," Gavre explains, exemplified by their crowd-thrilling wine-pouring act. Enjoy Gavre and Camphuis' TEDxUSC talk and the jaw-dropping surprise finale to TEDxUSC featuring Troupe Vertigo and Nightmare and the Cat. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
