The world permiere of Saltimbanco was held in Montreal in 1992 and featured a cast of 36 performers. During its 14-year tour, the show has visited 75 cities on five continents for a total of more than 4,000 performances before a combined audience of 10 million people.
The name "Saltimbanco" comes from the Italian "saltare in banco," which literally means "to jump on a bench." The show takes its audience on an allegorical and acrobatic journey into the heart of a city. Acts include: Chinese poles, bicycle, juggler, Russian swing, duo trapeze, hand to hand and bungee, along with clown and parody acts.
