Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil

Last weekend my dad surprised our family with tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s Totem! In case you’ve never heard of it, Cirque du Soleil was started in 1984 by a hand full of street performers from Quebec & has become an international sensation with shows & artists from all over the world. “Totem” is the Cirque show currently in Vancouver & as a thank you from the building my dad leases office space from, we were invited as VIP guests! We got to the event early & had drinks & appetizers before heading under the big top. (P.S. apologies for some weird photos…all were taken on an iPhone & some even had a strange filter on. I guess I was too caught up in the circus life to notice…)

Under the Big Top!


Show’s about to start!

The show was amazing, full of intricate costumes, death defying stunts, & beautiful music. The performance portrayed the evolution of man with everything from unicycles & high bars to roller-bladers & clowns. Unfortunately we couldn’t take any photos, but I took some of what I could, which ended up only being the gift shop. The hand made masks were really a sight to see though. We actually ended up getting the black & white one with the feathers pictured below! Now someone has to invite me to a masquerade ball already.




When’s curtain call?

We had so much fun & decided to end off the night with some raspberry beer & spicy calamari on the patio at Yaletown Brew Pub…yum!


Slide11I think we may just run away & join the circus! The only thing holding me back is the fact that I would be living with clowns. Actually, now that I think about it, it’s a deal-breaker…that & the fact that I can’t ride a 7-foot tall unicycle while throwing bowls with my feet & catching them on my head. Guess I have to work on that.
