Sometimes even the cast and crews themselves don't know about upcoming cities like this if the markets unstable for sociopolitical reasons. Seoul was off and on a few times for quidam because of the MERS scare last summer and they got the official go-ahead just two weeks before.

Apparently tickets are on sale in chile and the promo campaign is up and running... So maybe it's a glitch

That's interesting, thanks Bronx! I couldn't really be bothered to scroll down to the Varekai thread so I'll post it here (sorry) but whether good or bad news, Varekai has a new act, cyr wheel.

Is it replacing anything or just another act in rotation? What music is it using? I'm guessing Trasparenza...

Trapeze is now Aerial Hoop in Kooza. Same costume and music. Might be temporary (?) The second soul singer is leaving after Uruguay so cast may be in transitions while they wait for more replacement artists to join.

It says on the wikipedia page that Mary's last show was December 2015 and that Alessandra starts March 2016, so who was the indian singer in between? P.S - any news on the potential new soul singer?

Kurios will be playing next to the Miami Dolphins Stadium from 9th Dec 2016 to 29th Jan 2017. The press release says premier night will be on the 13th though, so I'm not sure which one is a typo...

Also just happened to see this article about Cirque's (lack of) success in China

I've heard all about Easter eggs with character crossovers and I've been dying to see it! I wish artists could take costumes with them when they go on holiday to a city with a show so they can make a special appearance!
And Colton: Chill out. It was an interesting article I thought I would share. If you don't want to read it, than don't.

We're all chill here, Tom. Hang around these here parts long enough and you'll find we're very up to date on most news :D

The character cross over visits are always pretty special and something of a social ritual between two shows. The most recent I know of what some Varekai costumes on stage of Kooza last year. They were worn by Kooza cast members though.

Yes, the character cross-overs are awesome! I was in the audience for Saltimbanco arena in Lakeland, FL when the cast and crew of La Nouba stopped by. Although I've mentioned it on here before... it was great:

The first nod came in the opening dance for the shows’ second half – the green bird appeared under the musician’s stand, cavorting around. The second nod came during the Russian Swings number at a point where the Baroques have all filled the stage, dancing wildly about in their own kind of ecstasy. Normally they break off and continue jumping off the swing, but all of the sudden the music changes from the rocking tunes of “Barok” and switches immediately to “Once Upon a Time” from La Nouba. The Baroques suddenly stop, get into position and jump from side-to-side like they do at the start of La Nouba. Green Bird made another appearance when Death appeared on stage, scaring the Baroques (she was one of the frightened!). And even a Les Con got his day in the Saltimbanco sun when the Ringmaster came running back on stage, screaming out of breath. The Les Con, played by the artistic bicyclist (Ivan Dô-Dùc), trotted to the center of the stage, looked out at the audience, pulled on his skirt in the same fashion as the real Les Cons do in La Nouba, then just nonchalantly walked off.

Wow. That saltinouba show sounds really carefully rehearsed. Others I've heard of much more of Easter eggs where if you blink you'd miss it.

Baaska Enkhbaatar (Alegria, Immortal, most recently Quidam) has joined Toruk. Interesting to see how they'll work in a contortion/handbalancing Navi. Looks like they're responding to all the comments of there not being enough 'circus' in the show.
