Typical of cirque du soleil, this show contains performances that make your jaw gape. The opening act of four girls who contort and balance, with or without each other, is so incredible you can't not react. Next, a group of acrobats uses a see-saw to fling themselves four thousand feet in the air while doing six hundred twisting flips in a micro-second to land on human stacks, the other end of the see-saw, or anywhere else they want to land...and precisely. The next routine allows viewers some down-time while a girl floats east and west on a giant swing while winding her body through all shapes to the accompaniment of peaceful music. Next comes the guy who does stuff on a tightrope that cannot be done, while the elderly director provides comic relief as he tries to mimic, and mostly unsuccessfully, his moves. I will not go through all the acts, but I have to warn you about what happens to you after watching the oriental girls who use their feet to do tricks with umbrellas: the little section of flesh between your eyebrows will be sore if you do not try to unfurrow them some time during the act. With all this praise it may come as a surprise to know this is my least favorite cirque du soleil show. I have four of their videos and I rate this one five stars because it deserves it. It's just that Quidam deserves a hundred. The other shows fall somewhere in between. If this is your thing, you will not be disappointed with any of them and I strongly recommend you buy them all. Oh, and be ready to laugh. You'll be doing a lot of it.
