circus Bar act – Tournik

Eight artists cross paths in the Tournik Act from Corteo 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!

new Circus show in China

Franco Dragone‘s next project is, no surprise, another water show.

A Film Park including his new “Han Show” are both scheduled to open December 2014 in Wuhan, China.

The preview looks GREAT. :-)

The audience chairs will move during the performance.

 

80 to 85 percent of the cast will be Chinese from disciplines like diving, gymnastics, synchronized swimming and ballet.

Cirque du Soleil stopped their shows in Japan and Macao. But Dragone’s House of Dancing Water has been going strong in Macao since 2010.

Her husband, Chris Carter, a former acrobatic gymnast for the British national team, is already part of the show, as is Kupets’ sister, Ashley. …
