Putting together a show for the Orlando Fringe Festival is a labor of love for the arts. We create shows to share our talents with the audience to enrich their lives through performance art. We give much of ourselves with mostly applause in return. 
     With this in mind, one of the acrobats from our most recent production "Clink" at the Orange Venue of the 2015 Orlando Fringe Festival was injured during our second performance of the run. Amazingly, he finished the show so none of our patrons would be aware of the mishap and would get the full experience. He's "CIRCUS STRONG" as we say in the business. After his injury, he continued to perform a trampoline act and an aerial balancing act before heading to the hospital.
     The next morning he had to have surgery to repair a torn pectoral ligament that had pulled from his humerus bone. He is looking at a recovery time of 4-6 months. 
     He will now be completely out of work as a result of his injury in the show as he is a full time acrobat. This includes running training classes for up and coming acrobats where he inspires his students to amaze the world with their physical abilities.
      He knows the dangers involved with what he does and doesn't want to ask for help, but the rest of the cast wants to support him during this time. We know there are others out there who may want to help also. 
     Thank you for anything you can give to help him on his road to recovery.

We saw your show at Fringe and were blown away the excellence of your art. Glad to help a fellow artist. We were on the team that did Prodigal musical, our first year at fringe and felt very welcomed by the veteran performers like you all. Hope to see you again next year after your recovery.
