Recognised as one of the most dangerous acts in its genre , THE WHEEL OF DEATH , is a breath taking aerial act preformed 15 metres above the ground without any safety aids . Powered only by the two artists Nikolay Karakolev and Ivan Mladenov and on its own axis as Duo SIFOLINIS perform a series of leaps , handstands , rope skipping and even walking blindfolded inside and on the outside of the metal mesh cages at either end. The Wheel of Death also known as The Wheel of Steel in USA , and Todesrad in Germany is rarely prerformed as it not only requires artists of distinction and courage but also perfect team work to keep the wheel rotating at exactly the correct speed for each gravity defying manoeuvre.
Total concentration , perfect balance and orientation are the hallmarks of this outstanding act as it is impossible to use safety harnesse or safety nets because there is no way of anchoring any safety equipment on a constantly revolving aerial ring thus making Duo SIFOLINIS Wheel of Death one of the most popular and thrilling aerial acts of its kind.
