Uncertainty can be happiness

"Security is a false god," or running around the world as an FSO

J’adore Cirque de Soleil

Posted by quirksalight on November 17, 2008

This past Saturday was a bit of a nutty day – Music lesson, running to meet a friend coming in on the train from Gwangju, rapid reselling of a ticket due to mumps (!), go meet more friends at Itaewon for shopping and dinner, hop a train to the Sports Complex to see Cirque de Soleil, back on the train to Hongdae to hit the town, run into some guys I knew, end up at club with said guys, and then find ourselves getting into a cab at 4:30am to go home. Whew!

Back to Cirque; we were directly in the center, second row from the top. I thought we may have been too far back, but the tent was a very intimate area; much smaller than I expected. And our view was phenomenal! Well, after I moved a seat over to the right. Murphy’s law: the tall guy ALWAYS sits in front of the short gal. 😛

I haven’t ever seen any of Cirque’s shows, live or on video, so it was a completely new experience for me. And just, WOW. The costumes were great, but what just blew my mind was the coordination and effortlessness that was projected through all the acts. Up to 20 people flying up and across the stage, with minimal clearance; some as if they were floating, others, in a feat of muscle powering through the air. Fantastic.
