Annette performed professionally as an aerial acrobatic, specialising in silks which involves a series of climbs, wraps, suspensions and dynamic drops. She has performed at cabarets, festival and in theatre where she choreographed a “breathtaking silk routine” for the new play “Edmund the Learned Pig” for which she played the character “Aeriella“. Annette was one of 32 Mary Poppinses in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies who flew into the stadium arena from the 40m roof.
Annette originally trained in aerial silks at AirCraft Circus, located at the Hangar Arts Trust in south London (UK). She has also previously trained in static trapeze, flying trapeze and Spanish web and later focused on aerial straps. Annette is not actively performing as an aerialist but remains a valued member of the circus community and can provide consultation and recommendations (including circus rigging companies and freelancers) on working with aerialists.
