Shatteringly Fabulous the Cirque du Soleil Way: Crystal (on Ice)

The word super-fan does not really do justice to how much I admire and appreciate Cirque du Soleil. Anyone who has been to a Cirque du Soleil performance is and will be forever transformed. Their genius, athletics and artistry is groundbreaking, disruptive, innovative and for the most part unparalleled. When I heard they have a circus performance on ice I was not sure how they would make that work, but I had faith that if anyone could do it and do it exceptionally, it would be Cirque du Soleil.

Crystal is not only a beautiful story especially for those young and old who are having trouble being seen and heard let alone understood in the world. Crystal invites those who feel boxed in to crash through the ice and shatter expectations, which is pretty much what Cirque du Soleil has done for the art of circus.

At Crystal, you will laugh, you will connect with the characters in the story, and you will pick your jaw off the floor time and time again. From juggling acts to trapeze just because the circus is on ice you don’t miss your favourite acts. In addition to the trapeze and acrobatics, there are numbers that can only be done on ice, and the live music and audio/visual effects are just as impressive as the acrobatics.
