Mesdames et Messieurs.....

Presentation... du Cirque du Soleil Quidam!

My DD gave me tickets to Cirque du Soleil for Christmas.  We went to see it last night.  It was fantastic!  Dancing... live music... rope skipping... aerial acrobatics... clowns... juggling... audience participation... Chinese yo-yo skills... gymnatics... and so much more.

Quidam is French and it is said to mean no one and everyone at the same time.  The Quidam of this presentation is a headless man, carrying a bowler hat and an umbrella.  There is lots of thunder and lightening and other light and sound displays.  The singer was live and she was terrific! 


It's a story about Cloe, a young girl who is bored.  Her parents live their own lives and don't pay much attention to her.  So she dreams up a world of fantasy and imagination to keep herself amused.  Quidam is the person who sings, cries out and dreams in each of us.

Oh wow, Hetty! That must have been amazing to see! I once saw a documentary about Cirque du Soleil at a festival in Montreal. It’s such a complete theatre form!
I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve!

Good you enjoyed a happy new year show. I like your cat-stories.
I have now eight growing-up kittens. So my home is a like a training camp for fortune soldiers.

Whole mankind walks on a rope high up in the human cirque. I once tried but fell down.
Amazingly I have since then a beautiful sight from the ravine!
