Corteo, que en italiano significa cortejo, es una alegre procesión, un desfile festivo imaginado por un payaso. El espectáculo aúna la pasión del actor con la gracia y la potencia del acróbata para llevar al público a un mundo teatral de diversión, humor y espontaneidad situado en un misterioso espacio entre el cielo y la tierra.
El payaso muestra su propio funeral, que se celebra con aires de carnaval y bajo la mirada tranquila de ángeles. El espectáculo, que yuxtapone lo grande con lo pequeño, lo ridículo con lo trágico y la magia de la perfección con el encanto de la imperfección, destaca la fuerza y la fragilidad del payaso, así como su sabiduría y gentileza, para ilustrar la parte de humanidad que llevamos dentro de nosotros. La música, llena de lirismo y juguetona, hace de Corteo una celebración en la que la ilusión se burla de la realidad.

In this mesmerizing act, a duet use aerial straps to create a magical and tender connection that enchants the audience with beautiful displays of agility, balance, and strength.

A tender and poetic moment between the Dead Clown and his Little Clowness that bespells the audience with child-like delight.
Four young artists perform fast-moving feats of prowess in a surprising act that blends juggling and acrobatics. With unsurpassed style, they defy the law of gravity as they juggle successively with rings, hoops and clubs.
A ladder specialist amazes the audience with his unnerving balance and finesse as he performs on various ladders, trying desperately to reach the angel who is watching him from above.

Surrounded by angels six-metres above the ground, a young woman dances across a tight-wire using point shoes, a unicycle, multiple hoops, and her bare feet. Then, she challenges gravity by climbing a 40-degree diagonal tight-wire to disappear into the heavens some 40-feet in the air.
Eight artists cross paths in an act which marries horizontal bar techniques with circus arts. The artists perform on a central cube-shaped structure, with two additional bars on each side of the cube. The various parts of the structure turn, sometimes all in the same direction, sometimes in opposite directions... just to keep everyone on their toes!
