I went for Cirque Du Soleil’s Quidam show tonight, thanks to a special friend and it was SPECTACULAR. The show blends music and acrobatics throwing in a bit of slapstick comedy for good measure. If you don’t know what it is, Cirque Du Soleil is a Canadian entertainment company, self-described as a "dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment."
The acrobats were brilliant, from the guy spinning around in a cross between a ladder and a hamster wheel, to the woman elegantly contorting and coiling her way up and down a red curtain hung from the ceiling, to the god and goddess who displayed super-human strength and control. The skipping sequences were beautifully choreographed and seeing the number in which 15 or so performers launch each other in the air like cannonballs and build themselves into increasingly elaborate human pyramids, without the use of wires or any other apparatus was breath taking.
All in all I give it two thumbs up; it’s definitely something you want to catch if they’re in town.
