Life is too short to miss out a performance from “Rosa and Bambú duo”,  Well ok honestly, missing out a performance with Rosa, would be a disaster, Bambú is just coming along, like some generic topping, but never the less, it is nice that he is around too, sometime anyway. A chance meeting in May 2014, when both of us join the cast of a local theater production and this was the beginning of a lifetime cooperation, well few years now, but who’s counting, plus few years is a lifetime for plenty of animals, such as rodents or birds. The duo is oriented toward performances of excellent taste and classical literature inspiration… either that or we are running slightly mad with non-sense and a strong lack of seriousness, the critics are still debating which is which. The duo also performs with more grown up audience, with our own touch of cabaret and burlesque, under the name of “The sparkling velvet unicorn” , or “the imaginary horse pooping rainbow”… nope , can’t remember right now, it will come back.

Both Rosa and Bambú have a background of dancers and physical performers, and we get involve to few projects from time to time where choreographers and directors are sort of responsible for us. After a grand total of 78years of training between the two of us, we decided to give pair acrobatic a go and here we are.  We have been performing for the past two years, various creations of our own with increasing emphasis on acrobatics, and dangerous ones from the comments we get from the audience, as well as our health insurance cost that is up to the roof.

You are still reading? well obviously you do not suffer from ADHD, good for you. We are secretly planning on taking over the “cirque du soleil” and the “moulin rouge”, but don’t tell anyone just yet. Before we reach our evil plan to take over the entertainment world business, we are performing in various events, clubs, festivals and private parties. This is obviously, a chance to see us before our performances’ tickets cost an arm and a leg. We are also giving workshops and teaching for various ages group.

Oh yeah, we perform burlesque and cabaret style pair acrobatic performances, under the name “the glittery burgundy unicorn”, bring the kids along, they will love it.

Performances

We provide performances tailored to the events' theme, and if the expected time is longer than what we can cope alone with, Ours friends of "Cabaret for the day"  will come and join us.

Our performances , by their very nature require a good ceiling high, but  we can perform on a medium size stage.

So far we came up with few own creations that were : sexy, scary, bloody, romantic, funny, spooky,

We only live once... or so you wishscreen-shot-2016-11-13-at-22-14-53screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-22-15-48

Physical comedy, pair acrobatic and dancing. no interaction with the audience. something between beautiful weird and funny.

This performance needs high ceiling and a reasonable surface to perform.

Physical comedy performance , the presentation is getting very messy, (we do the cleaning afterward) disturbing dark humor with strong touch of gore, parents might not want their kiddoes to be exposed to this. A member of the audience is needed and need to be brief and trainned beforehand. there is little bit of dancing and pair acrobatic too.

This performance needs a lot of space, high ceiling and a floor that can be easily wash.

Physical comedy performance , with influence in dancing and acrobatics, a version of it is for burlesque audience, but the regular presentation is for the whole family.

The performance, can be done on a very small space, and no need for high ceiling.

Physical comedy performance with audience participation. in the old tradition of clowning and enjoyable for the whole family.

The performance requires a fairly good space, as people are being moved around, no need for much high ceiling.
