Postcards from Chicago: Cavalia



For weeks now, there's this huge tent looming behind the Hubbard Street Dance Center where I take dance classes. The tent is the home of Cavalia, a sort of Cirque Du Soleil show created by Normand Latourelle, one of Cirque's founders.

From the press notes, it states:
This multimedia extravaganza brings together more than 100 two and four-legged artists in a visually exquisite, inspiring and poetic multi-disciplinary spectacular that pushes the boundaries of what is possible between humans and horses. The mix of horses, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, riders and musicians transports spectators to dream-like settings while celebrating the timeless bond between horses and humans.

Cavalia opened on July 14th and has been extended until August 2.
