DVD Review: Cirque Du Soleil Nouvelle Experience
Nouvelle Experience is the fourth touring stage production by Cirque Du Soleil which toured between 1990 and 1993. I'm a dork...I don't know my French. I think it translates into New or Novel Experience. Apparently it doesn't have a story theme...or at least not that Wikipedia states. We sure couldn't figure out a story theme from it but as always, there is something new in every show and it's spellbinding.
I think my favorite stand out acts were the contortionists, the Chinese umbrella balancing, the chair balancing act and the audience participation segment. I'll share the latter link below. In it, without speaking, a troupe member instructs three audience members in how to act out their parts for a silent movie. It really made me laugh.
