After a bit of dinner, we went off on a bus- apart from them usually being quite slow, especially on Oxford Street, I actually quite like taking the bus in London, it's easier to get a sense of how the city is stitched together, much more so than when using the Tube. But I digress...
We were there to see the Cirque du Soleil, the 'Totem' performance. Tony had seen Cirque in the US before, but I had never seen it. So I wasn't sure exactly what to expect and Tony couldn't really explain it. Which I totally get now!
We sat in a box! (Our tickets were a gift!) We felt very special and posh! For the boxes you could even order snacks and drinks to be served in the interval! Even more posh, I say!
Anyway! The show was really, really amazing! I am not a huge fan of circus in general or acrobatics in particular, but I was absolutely blown away! It was all the classic circus acts but re-imagined in the best way possible! I am not going to tell you about the show itself, I don't want to spoil it for you if you manage to go see it yourself!
I will mention one thing though, a guy and a girl doing a trapeze act; hanging off the trapeze and off each other, very impressive. But at one point the guy was only hanging from the trapeze by the back of his neck!! Bloody hell!
go elsewhere afterwards.
