“Now for something completely different” Act Two: SV Insouciant

All cruisers have unique stories AND some stories just strike us as even more unique than most.  Take two aerial acrobats, Zoe from France and Canadia Keeley; mix in Captain Nate; add a portable, but very large, collapsible trapeze and pour them all into a Hans Christian 36 and you have sv Insousciant.  Zoe and Keeley, performers for Cirque de Soleil and other aerial troops, have formed a roving duo that supplements its cruising kitty with shows at marinas, restaurants and malls along their way.  We were fortunate enough to catch the pair’s dress rehearsal at Marina Chiapas, Mexico before Insouciant heads to French Polynesia.

    Having just seen Cirque de Soleil here in Seattle (and loving it), I like seeing Zoe and Canadia cavorting in the trees-such a different setting yet still so magical. In my next life, I’ll be able to do that! Or at least touch my toes! Thanks for sharing the great photos!

    Fun!

    These folks were here in Seattle last year I believe. Isn’t their show typically done in the rigging of the boat?

  4. Happy to see you’re learning some new positions…be careful out there!
