Saltimbanco is a brilliant combination of seemingly impossible balancing, jumping and
spinning acts – whether it is during the Chinese Poles or Russian Swing, the gravity-defying

amazing lighting, humour and enchanting music, complemented with magical sets.
Full of colours, amusement and amazement, Saltimbanco is a fun extravaganza for the
