"The World's Best" on CBS is a first-of-its-kind global talent competition that features acts from every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet. They not only have to impress the all-star line-up of American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill, but the acts will also need to break through the "wall of the world," featuring 50 of the world's most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment. Only one act will ultimately be crowned "The World's Best."
"Born to Dance / Nacidos para Bailar"
For the assembly of this show, Los Vivancos have been surrounded by a creative team of the highest level in which they have professionals in digital technology and aeronautics. The wardrobe combines the futuristic technology of E-Tecnileds with exclusive designs by the Vass Ibiza an artistic fashion firm and leather accessories by Leather Designs, who has dressed artists such as Madonna and Beyoncé. In the scenery, which combines risk with special effects, they have had the technical advice of the NASA space engineer, Eduardo García Llama.
"We wanted the scenography of the new show to be integrated as an active element, not as an ornament. Eduardo participates actively in the design of the metallic structure, the propeller in which we climb and in the 'invisible threads' of which we hang," says Elías Vivancos.
"The Talent of Los Vivancos"
Elías, Aarón, Judah, Cristo, Josua and Israel are the six brothers who make up Los Vivancos. Defining their show is not as simple or exciting as experiencing it by yourself. More than 2M spectators in 54 countries have already experienced the extraordinary fusion of disciplines that Los Vivancos show in their productions. When five years old, they learned to dance in the school that his father founded and each one specialized on an instrument: violoncello, violin, bass, percussion, flute. They also learned martial arts and circus techniques, great protagonists of their shows. Due to their innate talent and a disciplined artistic education in the best dance and music schools around the world, Los Vivancos is currently one of the most innovative companies of the moment, awarded and recognized internationally.
The training they follow respond to elite athletes training. It has managed to beat global récords, such as Israel with the Guinness Record to the fastest "zapateado" (footwork): 1317 hits in a minute.
"We get up in the morning and we do an hour and a half of ballet, then we study an instrument for two hours, in the afternoon we go to the gym for two hours and then we rehearse," explains Aarón Vivancos about his exercise routines.
His virtuosity is reflected in each of the functions, in which they unite flamenco and ballet with martial arts and music like no other artist has been able to do so far.
