Aerialist Edward Clendon launches himself into his incredible silks performance at the Cirque Grande which is touring New Zealand.
Clendon, who has performed all over the world with The Dust Palace circus theatre company, performs a series of acrobatic manoeuvres high above the ground while entwined in two long lengths of silk.
Cirque Grande has just finished showing in Christchurch and is in Porirua from tomorrow.

For all the high-tech gear available to big-city fire departments, investigators still see value in old-school tools. These drawings were made by a French firefighter and professional sketch artist, Laurent Clerjeau, as the cathedral burned, and in the days afterward. They show how the flames spread, and record what firefighters did to try to contain them.
