Experience
The Pacemakers
(Main | Aug.14.2003 - 2006)


Bringing the show full circle, senior-most members of the cast, Birgit and Fleming, surprise the audience with an astonishing hand balancing adagio. Together they defy time and gravity with physical feats of strength, flexibility and control. This real life couple, married for over 48 years, is a testament to the enduring, everlasting nature of true love.

As Madame continues to work the crowd she stumbles upon an elderly couple (in their 70s) seated on one of the couches in the front row. She congratulates them for not being scared away by the content of the show and encourages them to come on stage to slow-dance. Just when the frail old couple start to dance they pull off the top layer of their clothes to reveal costumes; they are audience plants. The crowd cheers with delight as Danes Flemming and Brigit Thomsen, known as "The Pacemakers" perform an acrobatic dance routine, which would be impressive for a couple a fraction of their age. Their dance is a touching reminder of the endurance of love.
