A performers’ eye view of the Buenos Aires 2018 Opening Ceremony

Offering the inside view on the huge street party that marked the start of a 13-day celebration of youth sport, this behind-the-scenes video of the Opening Ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018 is high on colour, costumes and clapping.


Decked out in colourful attire and bright face paint, the artists, dancers and acrobats of Argentinian theatre company Fuerza Bruta dance, sing and smile for cameras as they prepare for the big event, and then share a hug or two after completing their contributions to a truly memorable occasion.

Neon green hair, blue-sequined helmets and streaks of red eye make-up all helped light up a night filled with tango, fireworks and breathtaking acrobatics, as the Argentinian capital gave the warmest and most spectacular of welcomes to the world’s young athletes.
