We’re excited to share details on two acts joining The Greatest Show On Earth when it makes its triumphant return this fall! Get to know The Flying Caceres Aerial Trapeze Act and Argendance, featuring Boleadoras, Malamobo and Bombos.
BOLEADORAS, MALAMBO & BOMBOS
Meet Argendance, a fantastic, bombastic folk-dance troupe from Argentina that will have audiences tap-tap-tapping to the beat of their mystifying Malambo rhythm. Previously featured as a semifinalist on the fourth season of Spain’s Got Talent, Argendance introduces a fusion of Boleadoras — exquisitely choreographed movement using throwing weapons made of cords and weighted with stones — and Malambo, a traditional folk dance featuring percussive footwork. Without missing a beat, Argendance transforms the human body into a spectacle of art and animation through intertwining, mesmerizing, stupefying lines of dancers executing a dynamic blend of rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song. Check out this exclusive clip from recent workshops in Barcelona. Be sure to turn the sound UP for the full effect 😉
FLYING TRAPEZE ACT
featuring THE FLYING CACERES
The Flying Caceres was created by Miguel Caceres in 1982 for the 112th Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, which then became the featured attraction of the 140th edition in 2010. With spectacular experience as a flying trapeze artist since the age of 4, Miguel Caceres is the first flyer ever to present both a triple and a triple-and-a-half somersault in the same act. Since then, the Flying Caceres has performed throughout the United States with both the Red and Blue units of Ringling at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino, the Big Apple Circus, Bentley Bros. Circus, the Royal Hanneford Circus, Tarzan Zerbini Circus, Hamid Circus Royale, and more. Shortly after Miguel retired from performing, his son, George Caceres, took over the one-of-a-kind, high-flying family business in 2006. George will lead the Flying Caceres with performers from Chile, Ecuador, the U.S., France, and Brazil when they return to The Greatest Show On Earth in 2023. Footage from recent workshops, below!
