Christmas has come and gone. What did you find under the tree this year? I found three special somethings from Cirque du Soleil in my stockings: The TORUK, LUZIA DVD, and FLOWERS IN THE DESERT DVDs.
As a recap to my last review of this wonderful show, I’m lucky enough to be a ‘Passionate’ – one of those people who have followed Cirque for many years. Through those years I’ve made many cirque-adjacent friends.

Running off to the circus might be considered a unique choice to some.

With guidance and support by Faculty Jason now performs in KA.
Nico Baixas of Spain, a hand-puppet artist who performs nightly in Cirque du Soleil’s KURIOS at Hard Rock Stadium, brought his “handiwork” to Gulfstream Elementary School on Thursday. Baixas, who is the KURIOS accordion man, entertained deaf and hard-of-hearing students at the school.

The scene is that of a little boy, gazing from the wings of an old vaudevillian theater. Through the lights descending on that stage, he watches in fascination as the ringmaster introduces an act in that night’s circus. For now, this act exists only in the memories of Nicky Dewhurst. But it will be performed for the masses soon enough during the annual “One Night for One Drop” charity production.

One door closes and another one opens. No, really. It’s not a cheesy metaphor at Cirque du Soleil. Last year, Cirque closed “Zarkana,” only the second time it shuttered a Las Vegas title. But the first one, “Viva Elvis,” was in the same theater at Aria, making it hard to question the decision to make convention space out of a second-floor theater distanced from casino traffic.
