Banquine

About:

This is an italian acrobatic act that originates as far back as the middle ages.  For the finale, Banquine consists of porters and flyers. Using only human strength and no wires or other apparatus, they combine dance and acrobatics to wow the audience.  It could be that the act represents rebuilding after a disaster or war. The costumes the men wear are grey and ragged versions of the costumes you see them in throughout the show (especially skipping ropes).
