Up until the late 20th century, the term ‘circus’ carried connotations far different than what it means today!
When I was growing up, circus’ went from small town to small town and from village to village and the artists talents were not deployed to their true value. Today things have changed and the circus’ reputation has slowly gained popularity and now presents unbelievable shows that emphasize human power and physical skills rather than the bewilderment of animal acts.
I saw my first Cirque Du Soleil performance in 2012 when they brought the astonishing Amuluna show to Vancouver. I remember the production not only for it’s unbelievable decor, impressive costumes and it’s breathtaking balancing of long sticks act by Lara Jacobs but also because it was a meaningful 30th birthday present from my mum & dad.
From Oct 29 to Dec 27, the Cirque du Soleil brings back its unique combination of dance, acrobatics, art, and music to Vancouver with its show called KOOZA. The shows promoters say that “KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning.” If like me, you’d like to see it, don’t wait much longer and reserve your tickets now.
