Saltimbanco by Cirque Du Soleil in Qatar
A vivid portrayal of the diversity that defines a metropolis, Saltimbanco is Cirque du Soleil’s longest running touring show and has performed since 1992 to sell-out audiences across the world, enticing over 11.5 million enthusiastic fans.
Saltimbanco —from the Italian “saltare in banco,” which literally means “to jump on a bench”—explores the urban experience in all its countless forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street and the towering heights of skyscrapers. A signature show, it is inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colourful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual vocabulary, the show’s eclectic cast of characters draws spectators into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope.
Classic Cirque du Soleil at its best, Saltimbanco portrays a thrilling and kaleidoscopic celebration of awe-inspiring artistry and agility. With a cast of 50 high-caliber artists hailing from 20 different countries, Saltimbanco ties synchronized acrobatics and athleticism into artistic expression. Solo spotlights and epic ensembles breathe life into each performance, turning each act into story of its own.
