Circus On Ice: The Big Show

1. ABOUT CIRCUS ON ICE

This is the very first time Circus on Ice tours in France. It is an event in itself as much on a technical than an artistic level. Indeed, it is a technical feat, which allows the moving 9000 tons of material and more particularly a real natural ice skating rink and its touring showroom across France.

It is also an artistic achievement with the circus stars, coming from the four corners of the world, mix with the ice skating stars.

The show is largely inspired by big American shows. The mix of circus and ice skating enthrals as much as astonishes the public through an original enchanting Live show.

The traditional sawdust circus ring leaves room to the authentic ice skating ring. The ice skating circus ballet, under the artistic direction of Veronika Kushnikova, attires itself in beautiful outrageous and shimmering costumes and brings you along with a whirlwind of dreams and emotions.

The show has around a dozen international artists in various realms working in fields such as balancing acrobatic, aerial straps, aerial loop/rope, acrobalance, ice skating, animal show, hula hoop, magic, juggling, clowning. Note, however, that I haven’t filmed everything.

2. CIRCUS ON ICE PERFORMANCES IN VIDEOS

Let’s start with a piece of ice skating performed by @allison.kymmel_official and her ice skating ballet company under the ‘Speed’ song by French singer-songwriter Zazie (note that the video isn’t upside-down despite the thumbnail showing otherwise):

 

Followed by an acrobalance  trio Empire composed of  @david_vasquez_leon, @duanyrruband @yordan_lombana performing under the ‘It’s Our Fight’ song by Steve Jablonsky:

 

Then followed two aerial shows:
  • Aerial straps with hair suspension performed under the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ song interpreted and played by violinist Lindsey Stirling.

  • Aerial rope/loop performed by @_jifg under the ‘Yalla’ song by French singer-songwriter Calogero.

The last human show I filmed, albeit very short, is the Rolla Bolla Balancing acrobat as follows:

And last but not least, I also filmed snippets of the dogs’ show by Gina Giovannis (private profile on Facebook):
