Last night, we went to the Cirque de Soleil's Immortal Tour show at Verizon Arena...... thanks to my dad for his taxi service. Karla and I had a great time watching the dancers, the acrobats and contortionists all perform.
The show began with a mime doing a skit. Then we saw a female pole dancer who took strength to a whole new level. How can one support their whole body with one hand upside down on a pole? Next, we saw aerial dancers on rings with black body suits covered in lights. The lights changed into many different colors... a pretty sight. Then, we saw two aerial acrobats doing a beautiful dance in mid-air. Trust is one word to describe it. Throughout the show, we saw different dance sequences to all the different songs by Michael Jackson.
Probably the most awe-inspiring performer throughout the show was a dancer that was an amputee, at the hip or somewhere way above the knee. He was AMAZING, to say the least. He could dance in ways I can't even describe and as fast as anybody out there. He could break-dance as well as anybody I've ever seen. What an inspiration to everybody in the crowd and he got a deserved standing ovation.
All I can say is we had fun seeing a show that is hard to describe. It was a good tribute to all of the great songs of Michael Jackson.
