In a stunning aerial act, a group of scarabs soar high above the stage, from
both edges to the middle landing on a platform. This breathtaking act combines many
circus disciplines: banquine, Russian swing and swinging chair.
And then... the scarabs take to the scene.
Volants is one of the more intriguing original creations from the
Cirque; it combines the techniques and talents of flying trapeze,
banquine, and Russian swing amongst a hand-full of other disciplines.
Here a team of black-and-gold colored scarabs take to the skies and
fly about the top of the grand chapiteau. On both ends exists a
staging platform and two standard pendulum swings from which the
trapeze flyers launch and the catchers catch, but in the middle,
however, rests a second platform from which to catch and launch the
flyers banquine style!
