The fabulous aerialist Blaze Tarsha created the performance shown below in response to the world’s most famous circus painting – Degas’ Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando, which depicts Miss La La suspended by a rope clenched between her teeth, over 200 feet in the air. The film was made especially for Museums Sheffield's 2018 exhibition Circus! Show of Shows, celebrating 250 years of circus, thanks to generous support from the University of Sheffield.
Blaze said: "From the painting you can already see how amazing and captivating Miss La La was, I’m very honoured and excited about bringing this painting to life."
Blaze Tarsha is a performer with NoFit State circus.
