The performance was an adaptation of the aerial straps act from ‘OVO’, which sees two beautiful butterflies fly high inside the Royal Albert Hall. An elegant act filled with stunning twists turns and acrobatic magic, it is performed by Catherine Audy and Alexis Strudel.

The newly created costumes were made especially for EE British Academy Film Awards by Susan Judd and the body art and makeup by Mona Turnbull.

Take a look at the video below to see Cirque du Soleil reveal how the beautiful performance came together.
