Cirque Du Soleil

 One of the things i like to do in many of my travels is visit the theatre … since we lack this form of culture in Kuwait i am always hungry for the theatre… I enjoy mostly musicals like the Lion King which tops my chart … but years back i discovered a Canadian group called Cirque du Soleil and they redefined theatre art for me.

Cirque du Soleil … for those not familiar with it … is not a circus! at least not a typical circus…. It is a magical one that transform all your senses into the theatre..

There are many shows performed by this very talented group and my favourite show must be “O” …

So for those travelling you can check their website HERE for any upcoming shows in the city you’re visiting … and yes they do come to this region too (mostly UAE) so you can check their schedule…. This is a show for everyone and all ages (except babies) … highly recommend!

Here are some photos:

Since we are on the topic o theatres … when I look at the theatre back in the old days when we were kids the children theatre better known as “Huda Hussein’s” … I am (looking back) very impressed by the stories, the dialogue, the songs, costumes and the background …it was a complete theatre experience that respects the minds of the kids and enjoyable by the entire family … I wonder had the theatre in Kuwait continued progressing this way what would the theatre be like today? what would the culture be like? …. just wondering!
