The return from lunch begins following a lobby performance by Tambai who treated the crowd to their marimba stylings.
As the crowd settled into the second act it was time for opera from the future. Beginning a cappella, a lyric baritone and classic soprano opera duet will merge mid-composition with two house tracks, two handstand balancers, three contortionists and a silk aerialist.
Opera Soprano, Tiffany Desrosiers, began with an a cappella song from the Phantom of the Opera joined by baritone, DJ Calhoun.
As the vocals reached a crescendo above them a silk aerial artist stunned the audience with his moves high above The Orpheum stage. Artists on stage began to grow as the music began to pick up from DJ SKLA and Inner Ring hand balancing artists took to the stage to show how two people can support one another.
As the music tone changed , three contortionists took to centre stage and wowed the crowd with their choreographed moves and transitions through body position many could never imagine.The creative talents of five very diverse performers coming together for the first time highlights the confluence at TEDXVancouver 2012. This was the first time they performed together.
