Quidam (Experience)

On Mike Dariano

I've always enjoyed new experiences and after seeing Quidam by Cirque du soleil last night I can't believe I waited so long to do so, it was incredible. I went with my wife to the Toledo Ohio show and was really blown away. It was more like live art than circus.

The show opened with a narrative construction about a girl who wants to dream and play and at first I thought that had they done something more akin to Alice in Wonderland I may have enjoyed it more but the loose narrative allowed for all kinds of different things and that worked out to the show's advantage.

There were people twisting from hanging ropes, hanging fabrics, and hanging hoops. There were gymnasts who were exponentially more stunning than anything the Olympics will show this year. During the show I thought "I wish this is what the Olympics gymnastics were, a team event of flips, launches, catches, tosses, turns, and 'acrobattery' ".

There were balancing acts where neither these words or the picture below do justice describing. The means of getting in that position were as delightful as the end itself .

There was a silent comedian who was very funny in the spirit of the show.

2014 Winter Olympics: World of Greatness

On Sara Alina

The 2014 Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia has just concluded. This is the first time that Russia hosted the Winter Olympics Games. As expected, the whole world tuned in to watch athletes from all different countries compete to get the gold. Dreams were realized as athletes won and hearts broke when they do not. But this was not the end. It is only the beginning to train harder and be a better athlete come next Winter Olympics which will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018. All in all, it was a success as no threats were made and no untoward incidents happened. Athletes simply were there to participate, have fun and enjoy the camaraderie. It was truly exciting and thrilling to be a part of the Winter Olympics.
