CIRQUE du SOLEIL'S :ALEGRIA" IN SACRAMENTO



Cirque du Soleil's "Alegria" brings childlike wonder and joy to arena in Sacramento

June 10, Theater Examiner Cindy Warner
Clowns tell the story in Cirque du Soleil’s exuberant and macabre paradox called Alegria. The touch of tradition makes a joyful and heartwarming homage to all circus past and present. Moreover in the parallel universe of the real world, Alegria’s clowning looks like self-effacing humor in the face of worldwide success. Cirque du Soleil has become an international phenomenon growing out of a collection of Montreal street performers. Alegria is at once a humble and astounding tribute and show of appreciation by a troupe, while monumental, which has not gotten too big for it’s britches. Even with five thousand employees from more than forty countries.
So in a world of predators who will eat their own young, Cirque offers a dreamworld of possibilties and restores the soul by fostering childlike wonder in the human form, in all it's forms. If we just hush for awhile . . .http://www.examiner.com/x-30274-SF-Theater-Examiner~y2010m6d10-Cirque-du-Soleils-Alegria-brings-childlike-wonder-and-joy-to-arena-in-Sacramento
