The circus is the place where real legends appear, it’s the place where excitement is taken to unheard-of levels. In Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents LEGENDS, we are proud to bring back The Medeiros Hair Hang Act like you’ve never imagined it. This larger-than-life act features not two, but eight female performers from countries around the world including the U.S., Brazil, Bulgaria and Ukraine. These “hairialists” perform a combination of choreography and cut-ups including spinning, hanging from hoops, and rolling down wrapped silks, all while being suspended 35 feet in the air by their hair alone! In this hair-raising act, audiences will even see the weight of three girls held aloft by the locks of only one of these tangled beauties. This one-of-a-kind act is the brainchild of husband and wife team Andre and Viktoria Medeiros. Together, Brazilian-born Andre and his Bulgarian-born wife Viktoria have devised and improved the mechanisms and methods making possible the myriad of maneuvers this troupe will perform for audiences. It is Andre’s attention to every detail, even welding the three different rigs that the girls hang from, that keeps his troupe safe and sound each and every time the act is presented.
