Cirquie du Soleil
Delirium is cirque du soleil’s first attempt at compensating their style in order to compete against their other international counter parts. The show is a bit confusing and dazzling at the beginning with a lot of special FX lightings that contain images. Not only do you have to watch the show, you also have to look everywhere.
People get used to it after a while and just concentrate on the main attraction. I find the balance of “real” circus show and singing a good one that kept me alert and amazed. Although the singing got too loud at one time and the speakers saturated.
My main focus for this show was on the background dancers. I wondered what requirements they needed as I see a lot of people from different dance backgrounds. There are even a few with really stiff bodies who made me wonder why they are there. But that’s beside the point. Of the good ones, 2 of them in particular stood out from the rest. One with long blond hair and the other with long red hair. There are times when they are free to do what they want and you can obviously see that they have a natural stage presence and they danced with the beat.
If you go tonight or tomorrow, see if you can pick out the two I was talking about. For those of you who went, do you think they are overdoing it with the stage props?
