Zaki is a beacon of light, dominating the stage both with silks and the flying pole. His timing is flawless, and his delivery is impeccable.

Zaki Musa’s gender-being pole routine deserves a special mention as a stand-out section:
Alluring, graceful, challenging of conceptions.

“Circus cabaret for the 21st century”

 Zaki Musa’s flying pole, in which he strips to a sequinned thong for an elegant pole dance, PVC platform heels squeaking against the metal, seems to fit that bill.

MY STORY

Zaki is a creative practitioner and multi-disciplinary aerialist, with a keen interest in identity, technology and narrative storytelling. He pulls from a diverse background in both movement and design to inform his creative practice.

 

Originally from Singapore, he has performed and coached internationally for the past 9 years alongside an interwoven path in design and tangible making. He recently obtained his master's degree in design from Central St. Martins in 2020.​

Zaki believes in continual learning and taking an interdisciplinary approach, developing a personal sense of movement through incorporating complementary practices.

He works frequently across a broad spectrum of styles as an aerialist in a wide range of venues, from the Aeronaut to Underbelly festival, and is an Associate Artist with Upswing. Zaki is also a proud and frequent face within the London queer cabaret scene, most notably working with The Cocoa Butter Club, The Bitten Peach, Raze Collective and Boy Toy Events.
