This act of strength and acrobatic prowess is traditionally performed by men. In
Dralion, it is performed entirely by women. The principle of the teeterboard is simple: two
artists propel a flyer into the air, where she performs twists and somersaults before landing
on the shoulders of a porter. The landing can be perilous indeed, because at various times the
flyer lands at the top of a three-, four- or five-person-high column.
The second act presented by the element of the water, Oceane.
Showing a boggling act of strength, this act is usually
performed by men only. For the world of Dralion, the performance
is done by young women. Watch with amazement as two artists propel
a third into the air... unsure whether she will complete her
twist and somersault before landing on the shoulders of her teammates.
Rising from a one, two, three, four and even a five person tower, these
elements from the ocean astound all as a flip lands one of these lovely
girls into a chair atop the shoulders of her teammates!
"Ravendhi" rings in for the Teeterboard act. The song has an Asian
theme and is highlighted by an intricate fast-paced vocal line of "la
la las" going up and down the tonal scale. To give authenticity,
several ethnic instruments are used, such as: Oud, Rigg, Daff,
Darbuka, Chalemie, Log drums, and (believe it or not) Banjo.
