Get carried away with life

The clown Mauro has passed, but his spirit is still with us. Instead of mourning, the funeral cortege celebrates the here and hereafter with laughter and exuberance.

Rich, extravagant memories frolic with the senses. The sound of laughter peals around the stage, visions of joyous tumblers and players fascinate the eyes. Regret and melancholy retreat in the face of a cavalcade of lively recollections of a life gloriously lived. A festive parade that entertains; the perfect accolade for an artist whose life was dedicated to revelry and making merry.

Love’s majestic highs

<p>Bella! Bella! The lovers of dead clown Mauro gather to reminisce on a life jubilantly lived. Lithe bodies channel bittersweet memories as they dance suspended from a grandiose chandelier.</p>

A bed that puts some bounce into life

<p>A cheery renaissance of our departed hero’s exuberance and zest. His fellow travellers gambol and cavort on outsized beds in celebration of the mischievous prankster’s gleeful past.</p>

Look to the skies, laugh from the bottom of your soul

<p> A fantasy of flight, a moment of lightness for a soul that must leave behind all earthly delights. When the clowness descends from the heavens, send her on her way again with a delicate touch of love.</p>
The Helium Dance act from Corteo

Pride comes before a fall… and a triple somersault

<p>Strutting young gallants face off in a daring show of chutzpah. Who will back down, who will be catapulted to new heights… or will humour win out in the end?</p>

Horizontal bar meets straight-up genius

<p>A fitting farewell for Mauro, a jubilant pageant of stunning coordination and grandiose strength. This is how to say goodbye to life with bravura.</p>
The Tournik act from Corteo
