Watch Thomas Martin soar on top of the TEDxFoggyBottom stage as he delivers a breathtaking aerial performance. As a freelance circus artist, Thomas performs aerial dancing all around the DC and Maryland area.

Thomas Martin is a freelance circus artist working and training in the Washington, D.C. / Baltimore area. Specializing in aerial fabric and aerial chains, he is currently a resident performer at SAX Lounge in Washington, D.C.

His background in film and visual art from Towson University has influence on his performances, allowing him to express himself physically and intellectually through circus. Finding a connection between the visual aesthetic, physical impressiveness, and conceptual ideas is his mission. A multidisciplinary approach to performance combines various forms of art together to create something memorable.
