Intensity, power and grace combine a young woman becomes one with the column of red fabric which supports and cradles her. Set to haunting music, contortionist and cloth intertwine, separate and embrace again. The translucent fabric occasionally hugs the body of the performer, creating a stunning effect.
The banquine act showcases the amazing agility of the human body. Fifteen artists perform spectacular sequences of acrobatics and human pyramids, astounding audiences with their perfectly synchronized movements. Banquine is an Italian acrobatic tradition, with origins that date back to the Middle Ages. This breathtaking act won a Golden Clown at the International Monte Carlo Circus Festival in 1999.
The diabolo, or Chinese yo-yo, is a child's game that the Chinese have evolved into an art form. The performer holds two sticks linked by a string on which a plastic spool is juggled, tossed and balanced. Hypnotizing the audience he tries to outdo each trick in this stunning game of dexterity and ingenuity.
A gymnastic exercise hailing from Germany, the German wheel is taken to a whole new level in Quidam. The artist becomes a human spoke as he spins, turns, twists and maneuvers the wheel, performing gravity-defying somersaults and acrobatics.
Alighting onto the stage, the artist's gracious silhouette immediately captivates the imagination. Perched on balancing canes, she moves elegantly through a series of precarious positions of ever-increasing intricacy.
Do you remember the joy you felt as a child skipping rope with your friends? Drawing its inspiration from dance, acrobatics and the art of manipulation, Cirque du Soleil has transformed this familiar child's game into a choreographic feat. As the ropes beat time, a group of 20 acrobats, endowed with exceptional co-ordination and rhythm, perform a steady stream of solo, duo and group jumps and figures.
Breaking with tradition, Quidam presents the Spanish web as a group act. Artists fly over the stage, attached to a specially designed conveyer called a telepheric. Suddenly, time stands still as the acrobats, in turn or as a group, drop into the void, stopped only by the ropes looped around their waists or ankles.
Never losing contact, two strong, flexible performers move almost imperceptibly, assuming positions impossible without an impeccable sense of balance. The artists call on their sensitivity and powers of concentration in their quest for perfect harmony. Their act is testimony to the natural beauty of the human body.
In hoops suspended above the stage, the performers pivot and twirl through the air, at times solo and at times in unison, performing stunning feats of grace and dexterity.
The manipulation juggling act utilizes several objects that are symbolic to the storyline of Quidam. Using a bowler hat, umbrella, briefcase and red spheres the juggler strings together impressive feats of balance and dexterity all the while maintaining his character role as Papa.
The clown brings a contemporary vision of clowning, a brash, and crazy reminder that the circus is forever a universal spectacle. With this subversive, colorful audience participation number, he creates a show within the show, a special performance for Zoé.
