Stunning, spine-tingling, elegant and serene
Calvos are creatures from a tranquil and mysterious world bringing with them a beautifully surreal sense of suspended time and alternative physical laws. Glass balls appear suspended in mid-air, unusually tall characters freeze and move in enigmatic synchronicity, and a magical soundscape surrounds them all. Calvos appear as either ground level crystal ball jugglers or stilt characters - or both - in the same booking...
Calvos are the UK’s top performers of ‘contact juggling’ - the manipulation of crystal balls that glide, float, dance and levitate surreally around the artists’ hands, arms and bodies. Impossibly skillful, delightfully mesmeric and utterly astounding, this real-live magic must be seen to be believed. If you’ve never seen Calvos before, take your chance now to watch the video below.
Standing on stilts and viewed high above their audience, Calvos stilt walkers perform beautiful zen-like freezes and graceful movements to frame and escort their contact juggling partners. Using silent/hidden wireless technology the performers effortlessly synchronize their statue-to-movement transitions with stunning effect and carry powerful hidden PA’s to create a magical soundscape around the act. Calvos stiltwalkers perform alongside their contact jugglers but can also appear independently both at large public events or in more intimate settings such as framing entrances to private functions.
