Went to see Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam yesterday afternoon with our six-year old. It was his first time at the circus and he really enjoyed himself. My husband and I had been to Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo when we were living in Montreal and once to see Ka at the MGM in Las Vegas. Although the Las Vegas show was understandably the flashiest, I really still enjoy the big-top travelling shows the most. The atmosphere of watching a show on a round stage inside a large tent while having popcorn and drinks beats the auditorium version.

There were 5 different acts in the first half, followed by a half-hour break and then another five in the second half. My husband’s favorite were the four Chinese girls with their spinning tops, called the Diabolos while my son’s favorite was the man inside the large wheel. I really enjoyed the couple who did a balancing act, statue-style. The crowd had a good laugh with the clown’s antics especially when he chose four spectators to participate in a funny pantomime. After the two and a half hour show, we drove back to Marbella and stopped by for a quick Chinese dinner at our new favorite restaurant, Golden Sun (more on that in another post soon), before heading home.
