Sounds good i guess for now when it comes to high caliber acts. But i'm a small bit worried about the theme for the show all I have seen for an artistic part of this show is a male dancer who is going to be a main character. Hopefully the director for this show is actually decent and can integrate these high caliber acts with some traditional cirque artistic qualities.

It sounds like it may be a recipe to form something close to an original CDS show. Rumour was the director will be Michel Laprise but he's busy with Soda Stereo.

I'm fine with extreme sports being the inspiration of some acts but I will be disappointed if that's the official theme of the show.

I agree with Colton. I'll be disappointed as well.

La Nouba has been extreme sports heavy with power track + wall, bicycles, skipping, possibly German Wheel. But that's never been the tagline of the show. They don't even play up the 'urban' aspect to it that much, and I feel like it reaches a larger ticket buying audience that way than with other shows that have much more simplistic definitions for themselves.

This apparatus could be for box or maybe even skateboarding... (Assuming its the basics of the set for cirque 2017 of course) https://youtu.be/rrUGUpyuEbg?t=19s

Maybe the theme of the acts will be the extreme sports but not so much the theme and story of the show its self.

Could be, or they're practicing the HELP! segment of LOVE.

Im sure that apparatus is for LOVE. It seems way too large to fit into a bigtop. Im sure its possible to do it but at the same time there will be no room on the stage for any movement if that apparatus is present (This includes for the act itself.)

EDIT: Never mind i rewatched the video. It may actually be for the new show. I do have a feeling though that this show isnt just gonna be about Extreme sports. I mean I saw two things on the auditon page for Dancers.

I'm going back to Kooza again in November so I'll see if they change the program by then for the new trickster. That tells me modern dance will make an appearance in Cirque 2017

Highly unlikely. They JUST added Alessandra to the Kooza program and she's been with the show since Quidam closed in February.

Ok... so i'm ready for them to put up the teaser page on the website for Cirque 2017. About what time do we expect it to be put live? Also does anyone know or heard rumors on the name,and director of this new show?

EthAn - while it uncannily has the shape of the standard big top stage, it looks like a lot of obstructed views for audiences in the round. I don't love the idea of conventional extreme sports element taking front and center of a big top show but It'll be interesting to see what artistic approach they take and innovations made.

I think I can only watch 30 seconds of that as an act. Then I'm Zzzz. Just like the uneven bars in Amaluna.

Looks like another show I won't bother seeing. Who even cares for crap like BMX or sports in general? Yuck.

The irritation I'm experiencing at the integration of people like this into a Cirque show was made up for when they started stacking it at 1:10...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but so far this cast is mostly men? Where the women at? :(
