One of several acts from Luzia where the ceiling opened up to bring the rain was this duo of Cyr Wheel artists. One was twirling in the air, the other spinning inside a big metal wheel while a downpour drenched them both.
How the performers do these amazing feats with all that water being dumped on them without drowning or slipping off the stage is beyond me! It is also a very cool to see the water dripping and spraying all over. A fantastic show.
