Trying to maintain balance in a stormy universe - the zebras constantly realign
themselves, hanging on until the very end. Resembling a playground jungle gym, this
giant aerial frame was created by Cirque du Soleil specialists to facilitate choreography
and gymnastics in an aerial space between the sky and the water. Performed by the
same group from the Bateau act, the entire number takes place suspended in mid-air.
A flash of light and a boom of thunder bring forth a storm. The name of the act simply
means Cradle, or Suspended Cradle, and it is the cradle that supports an amazing assortment
of characters. And amongst the rain filled universe a team of zebras, donned in black and
white striped skins, frolic about and take to the air trying to maintain their balance as
a storm thunders around them. The real treat comes while as it rains around them, the
zebra move from grid to grid, and the spectators move closer and closer to the edge of
their seats wondering if one will slip and fall.
