Cirque du Soleil -- Varekai


Source
On Sunday night I went to see Cirque du Soleil currently in Seoul. What a magical experience the Cirque du Soleil performances are. The whole set-up is so surreal that one is quickly spirited away into an other-wordly experience. It's not only about people doing "acrobatic tricks", it is everything: the costumes, the lighting, the music, the décor, the fantasy inspired plot. It's a grand theatrical extravaganza that is dificult to explain if you haven't seen it. This was the second time for me to see a Cirque du Soleil performance. The previous time was in 2007.

If you have never experienced circus at its best, I highly recommend putting a Cirque du Soleil performance on your bucket list.

Dear Patmos Pete. (Cool screen name btw!) From visiting your profile it doesn't seem that you are really Afrikaans, so I'll respond in English instead.

Thank you for the admonition; although I'm not sure how it relates to this post about the circus. There are a number of other more religiously tinted posts on my blog where your post would have made more sense.

Nonetheless, I also like eschatology and can therefore agree with you that there are many signs worth taking note of.
