  • THOUGHTS /// “The Last Viewings of ZED”

    THOUGHTS /// “The Last Viewings of ZED”

    It’s hard to believe that I’ve seen ZED for the last time. Those last viewings on August 11 and August 13, 2011 were wonderful. There had been a couple of casting changes and a couple of artists were absent from their group routines but the show was still strong. The aftermath of the March earthquake in Tohoku did result in a major change to the show, however, the deployment of an airbag below the high wire act, just in case the stage and high wire started shaking in the middle of the act. It’s one thing to consider the odds of an earthquake shaking things while you’re a couple of stories above the stage, it’s another to have a major quake followed by numerous major aftershocks bringing into focus the actual possibility of an earthquake induced fall.

    REVIEW /// “The KÀ App for Android”

    On Tuesday, August 17th, a tweet from Cirque du Soleil regarding a new app resource came across my mobile phone that piqued my general interest. Usually I ignore those messages because although Google’s Android is one of the most popular mobile phone platforms world-wide now, Cirque du Soleil and its mobile partners seem to develop only for the iOS platform, the platform for Apple’s iPhone and iPad series of devices. What, we on Android are second-class citizens? Not so! So when this tweet suggested there was indeed a Cirque app now available for the Android platform…

  • THOUGHTS /// “On the Announced Closing of ZED”

    THOUGHTS /// “On the Announced Closing of ZED”

    My interest in ZED began at the end of CirqueCon 2006, Las Vegas! with word that Cirque du Soleil planned to stage a show at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort (TDR) that would eventually become the focus of CirqueCon 2008, Tokyo!. That was followed by my scouting out the Cirque Theater Tokyo site, the theatre space being built to house ZED and, because I’d lived, worked and performed in Japan, keeping an eye on the show’s development via the related Japanese language websites. An affinity for the show and the artists developed even though there was no more significant connection than the fact that I could identify with non-Japanese artists performing in Japan. (I lived in Japan for a total of 11 years, across 4 long-term trips. My interest in modern Japanese theater first had me watching the shows, then studying the art form and, in the last four years, performing professionally side-by-side with Japanese, in Japanese, touring schools and citizen halls throughout Japan.)

    Hollywood 2011 is – “IRIS”

    Cirque du Soleil announced today that it will debut a brand new production, IRIS, exclusively at Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards next summer. The word "iris" refers to the adjustable opening—or diaphragm—that controls the amount of light that passes through a camera lens. The word also refers to the colored part of the eye. IRIS will take a unique look at the world of cinema.
