David and I went to see Cirque du Soliel’s Kooza this evening. Chloe stayed with good friends of ours. I thought my mind would drift to her often, but instead my attention was riveted to the performers on-stage (and in the audience – at one point we had to stand and let a comedic pickpocket through our row, followed by two energetic policeman).  It was wonderful – a fine balance of storytelling, humor, and remarkable stunts. Pretty much action-packed eye candy backed by live music. Our only disappointment (if you can even call it that), was seeing only two out of the three contortionists, but we were no less amazed. A ticket costs a small fortune, but worth it, especially if you’ve never been. Kooza will be showing in Portland through May 23rd.

Cirque du Soliel's "Corteo"


Yay! We just purchased tickets to see Cirque du Soliel’s Corteo when it comes to Portland in March 2008. It sucks to have to buy tickets so far in advance, but they sell out so quickly! I’ve been lucky to see several Cirque du Soliel performances in my life including Allegria, Quidam, Varekai, Dralion, Mystere, and my absolute favorite show of all time, “O,” which I saw last year at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. The acting, colors, props, costumes, music, stunts… all of it is mind blowing! They create this whole other world, and transport you for a couple hours into an alternate reality of beauty, action and sound. It’s magical – truly the best show on earth.

I can hardly wait!
