We got to put on two Circolombia shows in Columbia in 2015. The new show Acelere played in Medellin in September, and in December the brilliant Urban show was reformed to play a week of performances at the magnificent Teatro Colon in Bogota, followed by another week of shows at the Big Top run by Circo Para Todos.

Cirque Bijou presented the spectacle 'Bridging The Gap' for the launch of Bristol Green Capital 2015. High wire walker Jade Kindar Martin braved an 100ft high wire on a bicycle with his wife Karine Mauffrey suspended beneath him as projections animated the buildings, live musicians played, and 80 LED umbrellas created the Bristol Green Capital 2015 logo on the ground below.
Apart from the four follow spots, all lighting was LED based ranging from little battery powered uplighters on the small trees to the new SGM P5 units to light the front of the buildings. It was an amazing event to be a part of and the kind of diverse project that Cirque Bijou excels at.

The first time large scale theatrical circus had ever been presented in Bolivia. We played in Cochabamba, Santa Cruz and La Paz. None of the venues had roofs suitable for flying so a massive scaff ground support structure was built from which we flew the mothergrid and speakers. A really rewarding gig. A beautiful show in an amazing country.
