lukesiewicz-deactivated20110504 asked: Hey man, I LOVE Cirque du Soleil, especially Varekai when I saw it in London in the Royal Albert Hall! I do physical comedy, mime, acting and dance myself and would love to perform under their Grand Chapiteau sometime in the future... If I get there :/ I was wondering, is there any pre-show warm ups/routines you do to get yourself into character or ready for the show? Cheers man, Luke x
To get ready for the show, I roll around on the ground, do some “noalates” (which is my silly version of Pilates), listen to music while applying the hour long makeup process, then make myself laugh, bark like a rabid dog, make stupid sounds, open my eyes really wide and look intensely and everything, then stretch or groove anything else that needs it. AND last but not least, I say, “F@#K IT” and go on. All my best to you and your journey!
