Cirque du Soleil
Very lucky. Last night, after a normal day of work, Toni called out of the blue and asked, "what are you doing tonight? wanna go see Cirque du Soleil?" She knows one of the crew members, and as last night was the last dress-rehearsal night, we got free tickets to the complete show of Corteo!!
It was fantastic. I've seen one show before, and this one was totally different yet just as beautiful and inspiring. Giant chandeliers in which dancers danced, beds as trampolines where kid characters in PJs bounced from bed to bed, marching carnivalesque bands, a tiny woman floating around with gigantic helium-filled balloons who walked over the audience until someone pushed her back up in the air, and of course all the tight-rope walking, bar acrobatics, and juggling one would expect. Just breath-taking.
Please go if you haven't seen Cirque du Soleil. They really make you feel happy to be human.
[note: i wasn't supposed to take pictures so I had to take them very discreetly, meaning I couldn't see what I was taking since I hid the phone screen with a scarf. Shots in the dark that are better than nothing!]
