This was my 3rd Cirque Du Soleil, the other two were the permanent shows in Las Vegas (O and Mystere). Being that this was a traveling show, it lacked the larger set designs and programs that are found in the permanent shows in Vegas.
The show overall though was still impressive. The signature elements of haunting music coupled with incredible feats of strength and balance were still there. I really liked the part of the show with the audience participation. If this is your first Cirque, I would highly recommend it. If you've seen others before (esp. the permanent shows in LV), it may not measure up, but still provides a night of entertainment and wonder.
Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world -- the world of Quidam -- where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.
Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the “quidam” whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons—a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.
