Biography

Calvos is an elegant and unique walkabout act. Graceful contact juggling, statuesque stilt walking and beautiful cirque-style costuming is combined to create a live performance experience booked worldwide by corporate events, street theatre festivals and exclusive private functions. Looking for high-quality circus with an unusual twist? Look no further.

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.

Contact juggling…

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, make sure you watch their new promo video.

Stilt walking…

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 stilt walkers 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.

A world-class act…

Calvos has performed throughout the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia and North America at a diverse range of events from festivals and birthday parties to blue-chip company galas. Please see examples below.

NOTE Calvos also perform as walkabout contact jugglers with a range of alternative costumes and characters. Some artists also perform high-skill music choreographed stage routines (approx. 5mins).
