I’m a big, big, big fan of Cirque du Soleil. Have you ever been?
Anyone who’s seen their shows is like me — they’ve still got stars in their eyes and can talk about it for hours. However, I had trouble with the idea of the circus at first. I remember the circus when I was a child, the weird moments, the sad animals and the clowns who really weren’t funny.
And that’s the great thing about Cirque du Soleil. There are no animals — just performances, beautiful sets, costumes, and mind-blowing music. Everything is immaculate and gorgeous, down to the smallest details. It’s a kind of happy, exuberant perfection that shows you how spectacular a live show can be. And there are clowns, really funny ones.
When I found out they were in New York (they just had two shows in New York, one on Broadway and one in a circus tent), I realized I wanted to share this passion with you. First of all, because Im super passionate about it and i think everyone should go cause it just makes you happy, and secondly because it’s a great thing to do with your family over the holidays (like, a cool gift idea) and finally, because it’s so beautiful!
So come along, we’re taking a super close look at Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios!
