Keep in mind that there will be loud moments and darkness that will envelop the entire arena will be used which can make some young children uncomfortable. Cirque De Soleil also warns that their light show will be fairly active, meaning flashing lights are used, which can be difficult for those with epilepsy or who are photosensitive to enjoy the show.
The History of Cirque De Soleil
Cirque de Soleil began as a small troupe of street performers in 1984 in Quebec, Canada. Since then, the company has grown into an industry leader and household name. Cirque de Soleil is known for its unique artistic shows that cater to many viewers. Blending classic circus appeal with modern has made it nearly a stand-alone in the industry. It employs 4000 employees, including 1400 artists. They have reached more than 180 million spectators throughout their lifetime.
Cirque De Soleil’s main attraction is its live production shows that integrate acting, athletics, and colorful set designs to keep audiences satisfied and coming back. Cirque de Soleil has multiple differently themed performances such as: Under the Same Sky, Ka, Michael Jackson One, Mystere, O, The Beatles Love, Zumanity, Nysa, Crystal, Joya, The Land of Fantasy, Totem, Corteo, Kooza, Allegria, Luzia, Drawn To Life, Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities, Messi 10.
Each show is unique in terms of artistic themes and inspiration. The commonality shared within all the shows is the performative aspects of diverse types of performers, such as acrobats, strong men, trapeze artists, comedians, BMX specialists, aerial performers, and more. Music is integral in all the shows because of the lack of dialogue in the shows themselves. Cirque de Soleil uses abstract methods to tell their stories, some are easier than others to interpret, but they always inspire conversation about what was seen.
