Metro Manila – Good news! The circus is in town! All to prepare in advance our holiday gift that everyone in the family would enjoy!
“Le Grand Cirque”, a large scale circus production composed of world-class performers, will be here from December 25 to January 3, 2016, to offer us everything we’ve been dreaming of in a festive display, and more!
Where else but in the entertainment and lifestyle center that began the funfair magic three decades past – the Araneta Center‘s BIG DOME.
Today, #teamferriol aka my husband, my son and I, were privileged to see this internationally acclaimed circus a day before Christmas. And although hub and I had a slight idea of what to expect, we still found ourselves mesmerized by the aerodynamics, physics and magical visual display that made our jaws drop the whole time.
My personal favorite in this two-hour special are the jugglers and acrobats who, aside from showing millennials new photo poses for their Insta feed goals, also gave me a lot of deep thoughts to take home. Such as, how is it possible for these performers to keep a happy face amid their high-risk stunts? How long do they have to train to jump into a steep loop without ever touching it? Lol.
Hub preferred the fire laced baton performance, which looked like eye-catching poi dances in Boracay at one point, and a heart-racing fire whip act in the next! It’s crazy!
He’s also especially dazed with the transitions brought about by “mustache guy” who acted as a comic relief, appearing in all corners of the coliseum and unexpectedly picking audience members as part of the program. So yep! You have been warned.
As for two-year-old Zach, who came to see the circus for the first time, it had been a full two hours of pointing at different colored lights and flying trapeze artists!
If you would love to treat the whole family to a day of magic, acrobatic flare, gravity defiance, comedy, and precision, I would recommend catching Le Grand Cirque! Expect to be spellbound by atmospheric dynamics, contortionists, flying trapeze performances, wall walkers, trampoline jumpers and clown entertainment in a world-class ambiance! It’s a great way to enjoy the holidays!
