Merecumbe is a acro-salsa act where a dark energy emerges and female power is manifested through grand heights of acrobatics and the seductions of the salsa rhythm.

Éireann is a devotional piece that is powerful and poignant. Éireann combines lyrical grace and mystical spirit with dynamic, gravity-defying aerial work and  pulses with a driving force over the Celtic flute.
Sleepers is inspired by the Walt Whitman poem from 
his 1900 collection Leaves of Grass. Set to a reading of the poem, this tender duet uses breathtaking acrobatics and exquisite, unexpected shapes of strength to explore how extraordinary and magical moments can be found in ordinary, prosaic experiences.  Sleepers is choreographed by Paradizo Dance but was originally conceived, produced and directed by Cirque Boom Circus Theater.
Ven Ven is a traditional salsa piece that is fast and exciting.  It is compact with entertaining lifts and dives, fast spins and hot Latin movement. Choreographed to the music of Tito Rodriguez, Ven Ven  immerses audiences in the vibrant Salsa dance culture that attracts thousands of people to clubs and conventions worldwide.
Purple Mist is an intimate acrobatic duet, suspended between tenderness and power. Combining partner balancing with fluid flips, cyclical explosions and tender caresses, Purple Mist evokes the fog of memory and the solidity of passion between lovers.

They’re amazing!  I like them.  I want to have them here
as my regular people.  Just to lift me up and swirl me
around... If she could lift him up, she could lift me up and swirl me around a few times!”

Purple Mist is an intimate acrobatic duet, suspended between tenderness and power. A sound score (created by Zoë Klein) of high winds and snow thaws to thunderous misty rain as a man struggles to come to terms with the loss of his dearest love.  Combining partner balancing with fluid flips, cyclical explosions and tender caresses, Purple Mist evokes the fog of memory and the solidity of passion between lovers.
