If you know me at all through the blog, in person, or on social media then you know I love one circus and one circus alone. I love everything aboutCirque du Soleil. As a student with no funds, in Montreal, I used to dream about some day being able to see Cirque du Soleil under the big top. Since then, I have found a job, started a family, made friends in my community and every year I encourage everyone to join us for a show. There are many more options for performances and tickets than my student days in Montreal. For Corteo at Agganis Arena, I am partnering with Cirque du Soleil to offer a chance to win a family four pack of tickets, which is not under the big top but impressive nonetheless. I have been provided with tickets for review.
Clowns are a funny thing. People love them or love to hate them. I think it is mostly because the quality of a clown varies a lot. A perfect clown is a balancing act more difficult that walking a tightrope. The clown has to be funny but not crass. They have to take people out of their comfort zone without making it awkward. The clowns of Cirque du Soleil know their craft, their responsibility and their audiences.
Part of what we lose in every day life is a sense of wonder. We forget to laugh a little more and we stop noticing the little things that bring us joy, make us think, or warm our hearts. A day with Cirque du Soleil fixes all that. It brings us back to those childhood moments of jumping on the bed and feeling as free as a bird.
I have partnered with Cirque du Soleil to give away one pack of four tickets. Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo is on town at Boston University’s Agganis Arena from June 19th to June 30th with a limited run of 15 performances.
