The newly devised show includes Yana Alievia on a revolving aerial chandelier; the Stalkions (three men and two girls walk, back flip and perform unbelievable pyramids 30 feet in the air on the legendary high wire); the Whirlwind Rubsovsm troupe who acrobatically catapult themselves across and high into the big top at breakneck speed; the juggling Sherbakovs on the reverse pyramid of St Petersburg; the Doktrovs, flying and spiraling in the apex of the auditorium; the vertical pole balancing of The Alikanov and the high flying bouncing bamboo bravados of The Perushkins.
Housed in a specially designed chapiteau big top and is uniquely domed to accommodate the complex rigging for the aerial acts, it is supported by only four ‘king’ poles so as not to obscure the audience’s view.
