Haha. Trust-- I'm gay and I love me some man eye candy, especially if they're shirtless and dripping wet (Luzia's aerial straps in water *cough*), but I needs me some women to balance it out. Even if it's like 10 percent women. Having hot men the whole show would drive me crazy in a good and bad way, lol. So having women every now and then would be good. :)

So has anyone in the know heard anything about potential composers? As usual, I'm interested in hearing the score for this extreme sports show. I'm hoping the entire thing won't be 'in your face' like 'Distorted' from La Nouba and we'll have some low key moments too. Tbh, my curiosity does continue to grow some...

The shows name was released today! VOLTA! It is a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail.

I know it's too early to judge, but I'm so not feeling it. I love the name, but it looks like it's just going to be too much extreme sports and then two random clown acts inserted because it's CdS.

I strongly feel that it's just way to early to pass judgment. I admit I crapped all over Luzia when they first announced it, and it is now one of my favourite shows (even if there's a Cyr wheel act!).
Let's wait it out before we rip it apart!

Based on the trailer: BMX, slackline, spanish web, tournik and contemporary dance are in the show.

The tightrope looks more like slackline to me, which would fit more with the theme of the show

I initially typed sick wire, but decided to change it to tight rope since the only slack wire I know of in cirque is OVO and the trailer's definitely wasn't that slack!

Taken from the website: "WAZ, a popular gameshow host, has lost touch with his inner self in the pursuit of fame, pulling others in the trap of instant glory. But as doubt sets in, WAZ is enlightened by childhood memories as he encounters “free spirits” who open doors to his inner soul he has long kept shut. On his high-voltage search for meaning, will WAZ find the courage to relinquish his fame, reconnect with his true self, and shine bright?"

Never heard of him until  this morning, but I've been exploring his sound and so far I like what I hear. Looking forward to hearing what he comes up with for VOLTA

So far, I get a feeling that this is going to be a very futuristic show

Costumes are by Zaldy Goco who did Immortal and MJ ONE. Will be interesting to see what he does outside the MJ vein. The show contrasts those with identity vs those who dress grey and dusty in the 'ghost world'. Hmm.

VOLTA big top going up tomorrow. Looks to be white/gray swirled pattern and, naturally, the purists are having hissy fits. Lol.
