WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Alegria features an international cast of 56 performers and musicians from 13 countries. The 2 and half hour spectacle showcases acrobatics including the dramatically sensuous Synchro-Trapeze and the hi-energy Aerial High Bars where daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet in the air. Imagine two agile performers who bring alive the Mongolian art of contortion and an artist manipulating flaming knives around his body in a rhythmic and dangerous Fire Knife Dance. The vibrancy of youth is alive in Fast Track, a display of synchronized choreography. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air with somersaults, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.
