The Earth spoke to me in my trance. "I am soaring aimlessly though space... alone in the universe. Just like you." That is when I knew I was a planet.




Petra Delarocha is an aerialist, contortionist, visual artist, and a psychic! Her unique movement style fuses transitional contortion, energetic levity, and super sonic spinning. She is recognized for her relaxed fluidity countered by powerful dynamism during a performance which mimics her collected, yet suddenly energetic personality off stage. Her commitment to a character is unparalleled, and she enjoys designing works specifically to fit within the theme of a show. Petra excels at creating original choreography and she works hard to yield polished and creative routines. She wrestles her heightened sensitivity by producing powerful stories, both with movement and visual art, that express her experience as a creative conduit. She is based in Portland, OR where she works as a freelance performer, aerial instructor, face painter, psychic reader, and runs her own performance company: Prismagic
