The Aristocrats, eternal masters of the established order, try to stay close
to power in order to maintain their status. They flaunt their talent, hoping to
convince the new king that change is unwelcome in the Kingdom... at least as far

Artists deftly manipulate the “pillars of power”—the traditional symbols of their
supremacy—in a high-flying act combining Russian bars and banquine. In this innovative
act, artists balance and bounce on poles normally used for pole vaulting, which are held
horizontally, enabling flyers to execute a stunning aerial ballet above the catchers’ heads.
