Published on: September 6, 2009

This article is part of my Cirque du Soleil primer articles series. I made over the time a huge amount of content related to Cirque du Soleil available for download at various places. To make things easier to find, I also store most of my stuff at my file sharing account at MediaFire.com. The good thing about MediaFire.com is that you do not stupid delays or other hoops to jump through in order to download files, without creating an account (free or paid). Downloads start right away, the only thing that you get are some Ads and a pop-up, which is a bit annoying, but very little hassle in comparison what you get in return for it. The files are sorted into various sub folders to make it easier to find the stuff that you are interested in. The files that I have available are primarily video footage of Cirque du Soleil shows, special events and other productions, as well as photos, images and a bunch of audio material as well. No, you won’t find there the show DVDs or soundtrack CDs for download. Those are available for purchase, so please don’t be so cheap and buy those releases instead of trying to download an illegal copy of it. They don’t cost very much. If you are not sure, if you should buy a DVD or Soundtrack, then I might be able to help you, because the material that I do have available provides a good glimpse of what to[…]

Published on: July 9, 2009

I just finished updating my primer post about Cirque du Soleil music CD releases, which is part of my Cirque du Soleil Primer article series (which I also updated and enhanced btw.) Cirque released two new CD’s, which I would like to talk about. The first release was: Alegria 25th Anniversary Edition Re-Mastered That release was a major disappointment to me. I don’t know what the reason for this release is. There are already THREE versions of this soundtrack CD. The original OST from 1994, the extended version from 2001 and the 1994’er “Re-Release” version from 200x, which is virtually identical to this one. Correction! This version has a cheaper CD case, made up entirely out of paper, no plastic, except for the CD itself… oh and this version costs a few Dollars more. Brief Detour & ECO-Mania Rant Okay, somebody at YouTube pointed out to me that this packaging is part of the “protect the environment” ecology friendly packaging material program and not because of saving money. “ECO FRIENDLY” and “GREEN” seems to be an excuse for everything nowadays. Did somebody consider that I want the CD and its casing to last for a very very long time, preferable beyond my own lifetime to inherit it to my children, who I might have one day? I do not want it to deteriorate within the next few years and become compost to be fed to plants in my patio. The current CD case is not able to protect neither the[…]

World Record by Three Cirque du Soleil Teenage Performers

 This article used to be part of my Cirque du Soleil Primer article, but I decided to remove it from there and make it its own article instead. Note that this World Record was already set in September 2007, much over 1 year ago.  Highest Circus Act Ever Performed Did you know that three of Cirque du Soleil’s contortionists, Natasha Patterson, 10, born in San Francisco, Julie Bergez, 14, from France and Dasha Sovik, 15, from Russia, who perform in KOOZA, the Cirque’s latest touring show, attempted to and actually set a new Guinness World Record™ for the Highest Circus Act ever performed? Well, they did just that on September 25, 2007 at the top of Toronto’s CN Tower, the World’s Tallest Freestanding Tower. This feat was performed in the Glass Floor observation deck, 342 meters (1,122 feet) above the ground and as high up on Toronto’s CN Tower as you can get as a human without getting into serious trouble.  The CN Tower-Canada’s National Tower- is standing tall as the defining landmark of Toronto with a total height of 553.33 meters (1,815 feet, 5 inches). This means that the record by the three teenage girls from Cirque du Soleil can be broken, but it would have to be a much windier and chilling performance in lofty heights and exposed to the elements, or somebody has to build a higher tower. Not an easy task obviously, because the tower was already built in 1976 and nobody built a higher one[…]

I get this question again and again, especially at my YouTube channel CirqueDuSoleilGuru, which is focusing on Cirque du Soleil almost exclusively. Simple question, isn’t it? Or is it? What is your answer to this question? Do you have favorite show? Have you seen more than one Cirque du Soleil show to be able to pick a favorite? Have you seen a Cirque du Soleil show at all or do you have no idea what I am talking about? If the latter is the case, go and check out my YouTube channel and also my Cirque du Soleil Primer Article. I for my part cannot give a simple answer to this question. Which show I like the most, really depends  on the mood I am in.  To at least narrow down the list of 20+ shows to a manageable number, here are my general favorites:  “KA“, playing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, “O” at the Bellagio, also in Las Vegas; and the touring show “Varekai“. I also like “Zumanity” at the New York, New York in Las Vegas a lot, so make it FOUR favorites, all right?! “KA” is the EPIC show “O” is the BEAUTYFUL show “Zumanity” is the “FRIVOL” show “Varekai” is FUNNY and has GREAT acts in it If I would have to make a choice, because somebody puts a gun on my head or something like that, I’d pick “KA“. I have seen each of the shows above multiple times. The three Vegas Shows,[…]

Cirque du Soleil – Historic Time-Line 1984 to Present

This article is part of my Cirque du Soleil Primer Article Series. Aurora “Those who are able to walk on stilts can roam the earth unstopped by mountains or rivers. They are able to imagine flying and therefore to reach the Isles of the Immortals.” P’ao-Pou Tseu In the early eighties, a group of young street performers pooled their talent and dreams and founded the “Club des Talons Hauts” or “High-Heels Club”, aptly named because most of them were stilt-walkers. The Club also featured fire eaters, jugglers and other buskers. At that time, Quebec did not have a circus tradition as did several European countries. So the Club members decided to organize a festival, where street performers could come together to exchange ideas and techniques. They called it the “Fête Foraine de Baie St-Paul” (the Baie Saint-Paul Fair). That was all a few visionaries needed to hatch the idea of bringing all this talent together under one roof, or – why not? – a big top! Cirque du Soleil was born. Cirque du Soleil – Historic Time-line 1984 – Present The story begins in 1982, in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. In this haven of creativity whose rural charm attracts artists, art collectors and tourists alike, a group of young street performers mix with the crowd, walking on stilts, juggling and eating fire. Inspired by the spectators’ obvious delight, the performers hatch the idea of organizing an entertainers’ festival-the precursor of what is to become Cirque du Soleil. 1984 Cirque du Soleil is[…]
