TRAPEZE-EXISTENCE-CIEL

By Sandy Sun (Award-winning trapeze artist and lecturer)

Combining storytelling and performance, Sandy Sun shares her experience falling from a trapeze during a performance in an Italian circus. After a remarkable recovery two years later, Sun was back performing at the highest international level.
