MANUEL AC, Aerial Rigger and Technical Director
As a technical director, MANUEL AC has served in a variety of positions for different projects, both large and small. His versatility allows him to walk the thin line between the artistic and the purely technical. He owes his long time interest in aerial work to his closeness to engineers, climbers and rope access experts. But the world truly changed for him when he arrived at the Circus Space (now the National Centre for Circus Arts), in London, in 2010, where he discovered the dizzyingly fabulous world of vertical dance. From that moment onwards, aerial rigging became the main focus of his interests in his work and research. He has been putting his genius for high-level acrobatics at the service of Cirque Fantastic since 2014.
