Description: The New Vic season starts with circus, but not the clown and calliope kind. From the barrios of Cali, Colombia, comes URBAN, a take-no-prisoners acrobatic tour de force that balances risk and reward, defiance, and delight. An original commission for CircusFest 2010 at London's Roundhouse, Circolombia's autobiographical show features jaw-dropping acts. Vigor, danger, and attitude infuse every pounding beat, from the phenomenal feats of strength to the tremendous trapeze, tightrope, and triple dutch routines. Thumping reggaeton underscores lyrics like "escribe con los pies, poeta de la calle" ("write with your feet, poet of the street"), galvanizing audiences with awe-inspiring acrobatics, rich rhythms and exuberant energy.
