It’s January and Cirque du Soleil has arrived in West again. This year they are performing their show called ‘Totem’ at The Royal Albert Hall, I went to see an afternoon performance last week and even though I’ve been to see it a couple of times before it still wows me every time! My favourite scene came at the very beginning where acrobats perform breath-taking stunts from a turtle skeleton, it really reminds me of an extreme children’s playground! I was also mesmerised by the incredible lighting they have used, the effect is as if the whole stage is washed with water and the synchronisation with the music makes for a truly epic show. I left wishing that I had paid more attention in my gymnastic lessons when I was younger… but totally inspired and uplifted nonetheless – a great thing to cheer you up during this gloomy January weather!
