Cirque du Soleil is an event shrouded in Franco-Canadian mystery. If you haven’t been, you wonder if a synthesis of circus styles could really reduce people to babbling superlatives when they return. Or if they’ve been bought. This isn’t a normal show of strength, flexibility or prowess. It’s a full five degrees of difficulty more than anything you can expect. Think one-footed unicyclists flipping metal bowls from their spare leg onto the head of another smiling-peddling-balancing-bowl-catching rider. Add costumes, colour, light and music, and you’re only starting to get warm to the spectacle that is Cirque. Read on for more images and a special offer.
