Cirque Amaluna

 Continuing the Cirque story . . .

We weren't allowed to take pictures of the show in progress, but here are a few images from my program.

Amaluna had a sort of Tempest theme - Prospera, Miranda, Cali(ban), shipwrecked crew - mixed with other elements, like a Romeo.  The all-female band rocked the house too.  I am so impressed with director Diane Paulus - Amaluna and Tony-award winning Pippin, all in one year!

An act we'd never seen before was the Balance Goddess, who ends up with this wild array with wooden pieces all perfectly placed.  You could have heard a pin drop while she was performing.

The fabulous Ukrainian juggler who were first saw in Dralion was back as a Caliban-type character.  He was wonderfully expressive with his tail.

I always love the big acrobatic numbers the most.  Here, the Amazons perform a group uneven bars routine.

Overall, we really enjoyed the show - it's one of their best in a while.
