If anyone knows me, they know when I love something, I *LOVE* it. And one of the fun things in life that I have just fallen in love when Cirque de Soleil is involved. Any time there’s one in town, I jump at the chance to go and see it and that goes for anything that’s Cirque-related as well. So when my producer asked if I wanted to go and see the Cirque Eloize ID show that’s currently playing at the Cadillac Theatre, I quickly told my girlfriends that they now had an extra Cubs ticket for the game that night! I didn’t know what to expect because this was not your usual Cirque de Soleil experience, but that just added to my anticipation and I knew it would be good…and I was not disappointed.
Cirque Eloize ID is much more dance-focused with a gritty, urban street theme running through it along with contortionist, acrobatic, balancing and juggling acts added through as well; on top of that is a splash light-hearted circus-like comedy.
The best way I can describe it is sexy, visceral and just a delight to watch. The performers are just beautiful and in top, I mean TOP physical shape. Their performances are strongly aided by the music and lighting which makes them just simply mesmerizing to watch. You can’t help but just feel happy while taking in the whole experience. I would highly recommend seeing this show, but hurry and get your tickets now, it’s only here until May 8, 2011. It’s a great way to kick off celebrating Spring-time in the city!
