I finally got around to work with the last of the Cirque du Soleil documentary/making of DVD’s, “KA Extreme“. I got almost 10 minutes of show footage out of it, about as much as I got out of “Lovesick”, the DVD to Zumanity, a bit more than I got out of the Kooza DVD “A thrilling ride through Kooza”, but a lot less than from “Flow”, the “O” tribute and “The mystery of Mystere” where I was able to get 20 or even close to 30 minutes of actual show footage out of the DVDs.

The audio for this video was taken mostly from the official soundtrack of “KA”, which is like the DVD “KA Extreme“, available at the Cirque du Soleil stores online and offline.

While the following video for the Cirque du Soleil arena show “Delirium” is not based on a DVD (because there is none), so is it still over 6 minutes in length and consists of various snippets of content that I found at various places on the internet. Some sources were official Cirque ones, others were not.

That’s it, now I have to wait for new releases on DVD or other sources of quality video footage from Cirque du Soleil shows. Well, there are a few more shows coming this year, so I probably do not have to worry too much :).

Btw. If you like the videos, but never watched a Cirque du Soleil show live, I can only encourage you to spend the money at least once and watch a Cirque du Soleil show in person.

No video can capture the actual show experience. This is no joke, Cirque du Soleil shows are infamous for having several things going on at the same time. Even a very good multi angle DVD recording of one of their shows does not (for the once where they have multi angle recordings of the show on DVD, see my Cirque primer) and will never not get the same experience across as if you would be sitting in the venue with all the others to enjoy (and maybe even interact with) the show.

For more content and information to Cirque du Soleil, visit http://RoySAC.com/cirque, which redirects to my very comprehensive Cirque du Soleil primer article that I wrote not very long ago. I created the alternative URL, because it is easier to remember than the full URL to the actual blog post.

Enjoy the videos! Cheers!
