These two Amerindian artists perform a native dance using hoops. Surrounded by members of numerous tribes, they create new figures swiftly with their hoops, finishing with two globes representing unity and eternity.
These trio showcase their graceful movements, sheer physical strength and superb physiques take to the skies above a summer beach. This modern-day acrobatic take on the mating game describes our innate desire to attract and impress, an age-old dance that ensures the forward motion of our species.
Like two lovebirds, a young man and woman tease, play and sulk on a swing while intertwining their bodies in a light-hearted dance, showcasing their agility and strength and that of a simple love story.
The abundance of fall is represented by the harvest colours and details of the costumes as five unicyclists juggle metal bowls in an astounding display of agility, balance, synchronized control and physical grace, tossing the bowls with their feet—sometimes over their shoulders—and catching them on their heads without using their hands.
In a scene that evokes a wedding ceremony, this couple spins and whirls at heart-stopping speeds atop a tiny platform.
Wearing colourful costumes inspired in part by the lost civilizations of South America, ten artists perform feats of strength, balance and acrobatic movements. The jumpers are launched into the air and fly weightlessly across the sky like cosmonauts, leaping from one bar to the next with astonishing agility in a thrilling evocation of the human desire to escape the Earth’s gravity.
