Double Take Cinematic Circus

Double Take - Cinematic Circus is a circus and filmmaking company founded by professional circus acrobats, Raphael Herualt and Summer Hubbard. After spending the last four years using their knowledge as circus artists to create circus films/videos, they now return to the stage to use their filmmaking knowledge to create the company’s first outdoor circus show called “Jump Cut.”

Inspired by movie directors like Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam, Jump Cut dives into the quirky lives, and living room, of Raphael and Summer providing a surrealistic perspective on how they go through, and get through, this life together.
With the use of symbolism, paradoxes, and distorted proportions combined with their unique language of acrobatics and cinematography, the pair want to create a 45 minute long show that gives the sensation of dreaming while awake. A show that travels through time and space. A show that places value in life's simplest moments and poetry in its more tragic ones.

“It's a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what's changed is you." - Eric Roth
