Story

The show celebrated the Renaissance art of flag waving. Performers in the show included four flag wavers, two drummers, and three horn players.

The show began with the four flag wavers waving, swiping and throwing the flags in a choreographed dance. While the flag wavers performed, the drummers and horn players accompanied them with music.

After the quartet performed, the musicians took center stage for a brief musical performance.

The musical performance was followed by a challenge featuring two flag wavers. The flag wavers waved and swiped at each other with their flags in a choreographed sword fight. Tricks included swipes under the feet of each flag waver as well as over each flag wavers head.

The challenge was followed by a solo performance with a single flag waver beginning with two flags. The flag waver juggled the flags, catching some behind his back. Additional tricks included the flag waver using his feet to lift and throw the flag. A second flag waver joined the solo performer on stage to introduce a third flag into the juggling process. The solo flag waver ended his performance by throwing a flag in the air where it was caught by another flag waver.

The quartet made a final lap with flags around the performance area before the show ended.
