Ballet artists, who will dance for two hours to Rondo Veneziano, will be decked out in their velvet coats and wigs. The first part will be performed under water, Florilegio is known for special effects, surprises and cleverly chosen lively music.
A lot of energy, time and work is spent on stage and behind the scenes. The ballet technicians are as impressive as the artists themselves, as the work of assembly and disassembly is so important. During the show, the audiences eyes are glued to the clown perched upside down, wondering how he will move forward. We also like the sister’s trapeze artists act with their beautiful and soft circular movements several meters high. 75 people from 12 different nationalities work behind the scenes to offer a dynamic and magical show that will stay in your memory forever.
Florilegio is not a traditional circus, the animals here are exotic, the clowns are different and there are also bikers who show off their skills. One thrilling act is of alligators and anacondas on the ground while one performer walks a tightrope without a net. The audience looks afraid of the performer falling, too afraid to see security men stationed below to help them avoid a fatal fall. This circus is wild, provocative and very confident.
This is a show for everyone, from the great tradition of Italian circus by the Togni family. A long standing tradition since 1870, the company knows how to integrate certain aspects of their host country, into their show. Here In Morocco, belly dancers and percussionists fill the arena and in the finale the Moroccan flag is waved in front of a delighted audience.
