Rahel Merz & Janine Eggenberger
Glittering crystals dance in the dark, high above the heads of the guests. On a Baroque chandelier at dizzy heights, Rahel Merz and Janine Eggenberger add a touch of class as they display spectacular and elegant aerial artistry, which moves and enchants the audience at the same time. When they once visited a restaurant together, the artists caught sight of a huge chandelier high above the tables. However, unlike the other guests, they were not only fascinated by the sparkle of thousands of crystals but also by the virtually limitless possibilities to create acrobatic works of art for it. And that is how the idea of performing as a duo came about: “The Chandelier”. Rahel Merz and Janine Eggenberger from Switzerland, who combine their talents and creativity for “The Chandelier”, both also enjoy great success worldwide with a variety of solo acts.
