No Flying Cars

On Friday night, I went to see Ka by Cirque du Soleil . This sounded as though it would be a show about a small Ford car.

The show was spectacular and as the tag line promised was gravity defying, but bereft of cars made in Detroit and Dagenham.

The show was a Fusion of dance, acrobatics, and puppetry. The events of the story start with a vibrant Fiesta that is interrupted by an attack. The two twins at the heart of the story and split up and adventure through across many a diverse Territory. One of them has an Escort to help them through their Endeavors as they try to Escape those chasing them.

There were several breathtaking scenes, including one on which the stage becomes vertical and the heroes climb it, chased by several of the pursuing Raiders as arrows are shot by characters in the theatre aisles. Not all of the characters make it and tumble over the Edge of the stage.

The feats of athleticism combined with the amazing staging and simple story line made for a show to remember; I can see why this show is so Popular. There was nothing like it when I was growing up in east Anglia.
