Paul Tracogna & Adrienne Jack-Sands
The Owl & The Pussycat is a one-of-a-kind duo trapeze circus act in which the pair performs swinging somersaults and catches unlike any other, impeccably choreographed to the music while telling the story of their romance. They use their emotionality, theatricality, and technical precision to present a completely original act.
Adrienne's experience as a dancer, trained in classical ballet at American Ballet Theatre in New York City, lends her long, elegant lines and perfect poise. She was later a semi-finalist on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent, when she was performing as the flyer of Duo Volta. Paul's background as a flying trapeze artist, performing for over ten years in seven different countries, brings his vast knowledge of the technique required to perform a caliber of tricks not seen before on duo trapeze.
Together, Paul and Adrienne have toured Australia, performed their act in Europe at various Palazzo dinnershows, and in 2017 they were awarded the Silver Elephant at the Nikulin Circus Festival in Moscow. The Owl & The Pussycat were featured in Le Noir Presents: Cirque Paris at the Eldorado Casino in Reno, Nevada. Most recently, the duo had the honor of performing at the prestigious 43rd Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, where they were awarded the Bronze Clown.
