Two blog posts in one day. The reason… on Friday night I had the pleasure of watching Cirque Du Soleil: Quidam at the Newcastle Arena and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.
This is not a traditional ‘circus’ with random disjointed acts and a faint smell of sawdust. Quidam contains a strong narrative which is enhanced by stunning visuals, changing settings, vocals and a powerful musical score… a live multimodal big top! It is a ‘circus’ that reflects our changing times.
It seems all areas of our lives are being transformed by multiple modes of expression… even the humble circus.
