Experience
Strong Man
(Main | Apr.21.1994-Feb.07.1999, Jan.10.2001-Sep.26.2004)


Reminiscent of the Strong Man acts of traditional circus culture, Alegria's gentle giant bends bars of steel, juggles 34 kilo weights and even lifts 340 kilos with his bare teeth. In spite of his obvious strength, two less timorous birds fly onto his "perch" and playfully challenge his fortitude.

Guarding the Nymphs, nubile young women with wings, is the Strong Man. He is ever present in the world of Alegría and is a man you never want to meet.

His performance is one of strength. At first, he plays a little tug of war with the Old Birds over a steel bar. But then, he summons all his strength and bends the bar around his shoulders and head. After that amazing show of strength, he is presented with a cage and inside, all the Old Birds stand. He must lift them all! But then, as he prepares to lift the Old Birds, Tamir and Little Tamir join in the fun and with his back to them all, he lifts them off the ground! An amazing show of strength!
