WINGS BY RIGOLO
Enchanting dance theatre, breathtaking acrobatics, soul-touching moments
Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque’s new stage performance WINGS lures you into its own world rich with poetry and wisdom. Everything revolves around the young protagonist’s search for her own destiny. Through thirteen scenes, WINGS inspires you to discover the wings in your own heart, to spread them and to fly.
The international cast of artists and dancers shows you how, with death-defying aerial acts, world-class tap and hip hop sequences and touching dance theatre scenes. Special instruments and apparatus, developed from scratch for the show, unfold their own life on stage and appear to defy the laws of nature.
The show culminates in Rigolo’s awe-inspiring BALANCE performance with a feather and thirteen palm frond ribs – it is said to be “…one of the most remarkable presentations on stages and in arenas worldwide.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung).
