As 50 performers from 20 different countries risk their lives in every performance you are drawn into a fantasy world of
kaleidoscopic colour, music, amusement and amazement!
The first half of the show is like a Technicolor dream and includes human sculptures, very entertaining juggling and bike acrobatics, as well as a mime and the awesome Boleadoros. The highlight of the first half, is definitely the Chinese pole act. The acrobats perform unusual and seemingly impossible balancing, jumping and spinning acrobatic routines on four Chinese poles while the rest of the cast is singing and dancing.
The second half contains more breathtaking acrobatics, including the dangerous Russian swing that jettisons players in flips and somersaults through the air to be caught on a mat at the edge of the stage. The show ends with the gravity-defying Bungee and Trapeze artists in elastic harnesses, jumping and flipping about on bungee-like cords. The choreography and precise timing of this act is amazing!
In addition to stand seating (which is rather far away from the stage), floor seating is available, bringing those audience members really close to the stage. During the show a few audience members have the honour of being ushered out of their seats by very unique clowns to become part of the show.
The technical expertise, extravagant design, and teamwork is amazing!
Cirque Du Soleil is not a traditional circus!
With enchanting music, dancing and choreography as well as spectacular costumes, fantastic lighting effects, extravagant design and showmanship, Saltimbanco takes circus to a new level.
Saltimbanco is a fun not-to-be-missed show for the whole family to enjoy!
