The cast and production of Salto Entertainment is led by Ivan Espana, a fifth generation heir to an incredible variety of circus history and talent. Ivan began performing as a young child and by his teens was an accomplished star on the family’s trapeze act named “The Flying Espaas.” The Flying Espaas gained global recognition by presenting an elegant and modern interpretation of the traditional flying trapeze act which has influenced and inspired trapeze artist ever since.
As Ivan’s talents as a performer were established, his interest in custom riggings were developing. Ultimately, his fascination with custom riggings, along with an emerging interest in daredevil stunts, led him to the development of a variety of new acts, including one of the first double Sky-wheels and a modernized presentation of motorcycle Thunder-Dome, a.k.a., The Globe of Death, along with the bungee trapeze and the graceful aerial Chiffon.
Through his innovation and showmanship, Ivan has been privileged to perform at The Sydney Opera House in Australia, Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Kiss in Concert, NBC’s “Death-Defying Thrills”, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and played a prominent role in the Lear Levin-Walt Disney Pictures video production “Circus”. These performances have led to international prizes such as the prestigious Silver Clown at the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo in 1990 and the Action Maverick Award in New York City in 2007.
Challenged and inspired to continue influencing the circus, Ivan, together with his brother, Noe, brought to life one of the most spectacular productions, CIRQUESA-DreamQuest! CIRQUESA quickly became the Trip Advisor #1 Attraction in Virginia Beach in 2013. Thriving by the challenge to create the impossible, Ivan has continued to create a variety of new acts and productions, including Cirque Holidays, Moto Psycho Circus and more.
