5 Entertaining Unique Talent Show Acts
Citius, Altius, Fortius: Faster, higher, stronger. Such is the credo of AcroArmy, a high-flying group of award-winning acrobats led by a World Champion acrobatic gymnast, Arthur Davis. The motley crew has members ranging in age from 11-27, and everyone can twirl, twist, flip and fly with astonishing grace. AcroArmy performed with acclaim on America’s Got Talent, and now performs for audiences around America.
The sweeping brush strokes and bold colors of Heidi Schwartz capture both the heart of the event and the heart of the audience. In Paint Your Event, Schwartz creates live paintings of the occasion – the banquet, the lecture, the wedding – in such a way that the atmosphere seeps into the canvas. Each picture takes about three hours. She works coast to coast in and near major metropolises like Chicago, Miami and New York City.
rePercussion marches to the beat of its drum. Blistering with high energy and comedy, the rhythmists extract music from trash can lids, typewriters, forks, parking signs and more. Interspersed between the drumming extravaganzas are bouts of tap dancing, hip hop dancing and slapstick. The show has traveled from Dubai to Alaska, but rePercussion works with any group, large or small, to create one of the best unique talent show acts.
A former finalist on America’s Got Talent, Joe Castillo is world renowned for SandStory, his spellbinding ability to use sand, light and music to tell inspiring tales. Castillo also performs ArtStory, where he weaves an intricate story on a 4×8 easel, and WordStory, where he entertains and uplifts audiences, corporate or private. Castillo is a 32-year veteran of the inspirational art entertainment circuit and speaks both English and Spanish.
Adam Trent is a quadruple threat. A master of illusion, dance, song and comedy, he has performed his one-man magic in dozens of countries, comedy clubs and campuses. He is the youngest contestant to ever win back-to-back medals in the P.C.A.M. Pro Magic challenge and is one of the fastest-rising comedy stars in the world. Every live show is different, and Trent enjoys nothing more than breaking the fourth wall. He is currently part of The Illusionists Tour.
Unique talent show acts do more than entertain. They awe, inspire, cajole, shock and regale. More than anything, they challenge audiences to rethink their perceptions of music, magic and art. Also, as AcroArmy tumbles and soars, the imagination of the audience soars with them.
