Summary

Summary

Cirque du Soleil is considered a stunning concept in modern performance art and circus craft. There are no dancing bears here, though there are a few clowns. The performers are all human and each exhibits a superhuman ability at acrobatic feats and the ability to spread awe or mirth over the spectators. Quidam is the featured Cirque du Soleil extravaganza in this video. The show includes a huge, rotating stage and arching trapeze platforms to bring the performers right over the heads in the audience. ~ Rovi
