Contortion (sometimes contortion-ism) is an unusual form of acrobatic display which involves the extreme bending and flexing of the human body. Contortion is often part of a circus act or other artistic performance. Some contortionist perform everyday, while other just enjoy having the flexibility that allows them to squeeze into tight places- literally. In general, contortionists have unusual natural flexibility, which is then enhanced through gymnastic training. Contortionist can be any gender, any age, any race, and any size. Just check out some of the most extreme contortionist photos ever.
