Charice Rust is not what you’d expect from an aerialist. From an early age working on her family’s sheep farm, she realised she enjoyed and excelled in using her body’s capacity for strength in movement. When she discovered circus she found her specialty, aerial straps, suited her enthusiasm for training hard and for defying expectations of what female bodies are capable of. Drawing on her intense training at NICA Charice challenges the status quo of aerial artistry, developing her unique straps style and vocabulary. Charice combines her passion for innovative expression and considered ideas into creating powerful physical performances.
