About Alegrķa

Alegrķa is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation. An
operatic introspection of the struggle for power and the invigorating energy
of youth, Alegrķa relates the tale of power versus weakness, the king versus
his jesters, and age against youth.

A kingdom without a king, Alegrķa is a world where everyone feels imbued
with power —from impish court jester Fleur to the young and vital Bronx, to
the aged and aristocratic Birds. Alegrķa is inhabited by minstrels, rogues,
beggars, nobles, children and clowns, the only characters able to adapt to
the changing times and the upheaval it brings. In this enigmatic, troubling
world of profound changes and uncertainty, despite all the trials and
tribulations, there is only one constant: the human spirit remains
implacable.

Alegrķa features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from
17 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics. Acts include the Synchro
Trapeze and the high-speed, high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring
aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage. The
vibrancy of youth is alive in Power Track, a brilliant display of
synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system hidden under the stage floor. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air and perform
spectacular somersaults and mid-air turns, landing on bars perched on the
sturdy shoulders of catchers.
