    Joey Arrigo – About the Demands of Performance

    Joey Arrigo saw his first Cirque du Soleil show — on a VHS tape — when he was 5. It was “magic,” he thought, twirling in imitation around the family’s Newmarket home.

He spoke with the Star about the physical and mental demands of doing up to 10 shows a week.
