Art Installations

  • Hydra Aerial Structure:  “structure looming over the Gorge skyline, lit up with pyro effects and brought to life with dangling aerialists, trapeze artists, and hoopers.  Created by the imaginative minds of Vau De Vire, one of the country’s most acclaimed entertainment troupes.”
  • The ZigRoller:  an “otherworldly ambient piece of art where performers roll around on an immense metal contraption, displaying the beauty of grace and balance.   Paradiso will be the ZigRoller’s first appearance north of San Francisco and will add a dimension of bewilderment to the beautiful backdrop of the Gorge.”
  • Butterfiles In A Bubble:  “giant butterflies floating atop the audience in giant lighted balls”.
  • Stiltwalkers:  Beautiful Vibrant Butterfly, Exotic Erotic Flower, WildChild Praying Mantids, and Amazoid Paradiso Warriors.
