For years, since I was a youngster growing up in Toronto, I have always been fascinated by the sheer artistry and skill that goes into a Cirque du Soleil show - the combination of performers, costumes, sets, music and of course the acrobatics itself creates a feast for the senses and tells an amazing story at the same time!

Since it's origin in Montreal, Canada in 1984, the Cirque du Soleil has delighted audiences all over the globe and I am so excited to be introducing my daughter to this fabulous sensory experience - and right here in Charleston!

With eighteen different shows currently in production, I was so pleased to find out that Quidam is coming to the North Charleston Coliseum as part of it's current tour of the Southeastern United States!

Even if Quidam isn't touring in your area, you can become part of the Cirque du Soleil Cirque Club and get updates and advance information about shows and features!

Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world - the world of Quidam - where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.
Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the "quidam" whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons - a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.
Quidam will be in North Charleston from March 27th through 31st and you can still get tickets!  There are also shows scheduled in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Virginia & North Carolina, as well as plans in the works for Florida, Ohio and beyond!

Robyn and I will be attending the opening night performance on the 27th!  If you're in the Charleston area and want to meet up before or after the show, just grab your tickets here and let me know!  I am so excited!  Here's a little peek into what we will see:
