I'm going with my Mom & Mother in Law to see Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco tonight. Anyone ever seen this particular show? It should be fun!
Multi-coloured beings slip onto the stage and climb on Chinese poles, which symbolize the sky-scrapers of Saltimbanco. Leaping from pole to pole the acrobats soar through the air in a breathtaking display of agility, power and speed. This act is inspired by a Chinese discipline and features the house troup performing acrobatic moves over 25 feet above the stage.
In a display of tremendous power and an unwavering sense of balance, two men engaged in a hand-to-hand duo push their bodies to the limits of human strength.
