Niki Frisky and Sarah the Bobcat defy gravity with their aerial acrobatics as the Mystic Pony Aerial Troupe. The name, as the two trapeze artists explain on their Facebook page, comes from a legend about a unicorn who fell in love with Pegasus; their offspring were acrobats called The Mystic Ponies. These sparkle-filled stallions could fly and flip through the air with ease, in much the same whimsical way that their namesakes do.
Recently, UNO film student Taylor Terrebonne followed Niki and Sarah through their aerial paces for this video documentary. Enjoy.
The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop’s documentary class. Read Renee Peck’s column about the program here.
