Not often you see the Grim Reaper eating a banana…

...or indeed, any of the other weird and wonderful creatures we encountered on a dark night, while filming the Wolanski Pole and Aerial Fitness show at the Macrobert Theatre, Stirling.  This was a live Hallowe'en show with death-defying stunts on display from start to finish, and not a safety net in sight.   On hoops, poles, ropes and Chinese silks, the performers dazzled and terrified the audience in equal measure.  Having made a promo for the show a few months ago, we were thrilled to be asked to film the live performance - the skills on display delivered shock and awe in spades.  But it was also a reminder of how easily a single word can lead to prejudice.  In this case - 'pole'.  'You mean - pole dancing?' (cue snigger).  Well, having watched this talented group - of guys as well as girls - train and perform, there's one very different word that comes to mind.  'Wow!'
