Corteo features a variety of innovative acrobatic equipment elements that were invented at Cirque du Soleil and designed to mesh seamlessly with the set design.
- The “Paradise” act brings together two circus skills that have never been combined before: the Korean Cradle and the Tramponet (a combination of trampoline and safety net). The artists are thrown between three Korean Cradle stations placed at an unprecedented distance from each other, and rebound off the Tramponet, which is 30 m long.
- The “Tournik” consist of a steel frame and twin high bars mounted on the stage turntables.
- The “Lustres” are giant chandeliers that float in mid-air above the stage. They are decorated with some 4,000 sparkling “jewels” and garlands of reflective acrylic spheres.
- • There are three custom-built ladders in the show, each designed to meet a different acrobatic demand. They include a bungee ladder and a tall ladder which is almost 4.5 m high.
