September 2010 saw a new addition to the week-long desert celebration of Burning Man: Zen Art’s own Circus Maximus!
The innovative Zen Art’s crew created their own multi-level, multi-functional performance structure in the Nexus camp (see the model here), and put on a show to rival any in the ancient arena of the same name.
For those of you unfamiliar, the Burning Man festival is an annual celebration of art, music, and community held every year in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.
The festival consists of various manmade structures showcasing different kinds of electronic music, visual art, performance art, and of course the infamous uniquely-adorned, drug-infused, self-indulgent partygoers!
Circus Maximus flaunted some of Zen Art’s most spellbinding performances. The trapeze and aerial silk performers displayed astounding feats of agility and strength, soaring high above the awe-stricken cavorting revelers.
On the ground Zen Arts’ pole dancers, like the incredibly sexy Zoraya Judd, brought the desert heat to an inferno with their sensual and seductive pageantry of the pole.
And, as the night progressed, the Zen Arts fire dancers kept the heat going, illuminating a circus ring of ravers and pushing the party to the wee morning hours.
A new addition to the performances this year was that of professional ballerina Teanna Zarro.
Zen Arts’ own red-headed swan queen entranced and enchanted partygoers with her maiden performance for the Zen Arts company.
