In 2005 Circo Luci combined their circus theatrics with the fluid beauty of figure skating to create a new style of circus performance, CIRQUE ON ICE®. Premiering in Brasilia, Brazil, GLACE: Cirque on Ice fused the beauty of skating with the thrill of acrobatics and aerial performance. The show has toured internationally, entertaining audiences in the United States and South America.
Although Cirque on Ice originated in an arena, it has been reworked to be performed in theaters as well as temporary spaces. In 2006, GLACE: Cirque on Ice embarked on a US tour, bringing the Cirque on Ice magic to theaters across the US. In addition to performing on real ice, Glace: Cirque on Ice can be performed on synthetic ice skating surfaces.
