Anyone want to invent a free standing pole?

I forgot to mention this before the Cirque du Noc last weekend. I was invited to perform with them. That's huge. So huge in fact that I declined because I didn't think I was good enough. But then I made that pole tricks catalog post of all the tricks I can do and realized I can do quite a bit and I am ready to perform. Once I changed my reply to "yes" it didn't take us long to realize that with a ceiling two stories high, there was simply no way to get a pole into the performance area. :(

I'm all proud and stuff that I was asked, especially considering how talented and amazing some of those Cirque du Noc acrobats are. But I'm finding myself limited by the accessibility of a dancing pole. There is one company that makes a free standing one that doesn't even need a ceiling. But the stage that holds it is big and bulky and hardly portable to pack up and take from place to place. It's size also makes it difficult to dance on, completely eliminating the possibility of graceful floor work. I need to invent my own portable pole, one that doesn't require a ceiling and has either a tiny base that doesn't get in the way of floor work or a base huge enough to do floor work on.
