Art is one thing, but art in motion is on a whole different and divine level. The performers for Cirque de Soleil are some of the best in the world at what they do. It is like a Terry Gilliam film brought to life before your very eyes, with zero room for failure.
To get an idea of just how utterly staggering their work is, check out Sparked. Humans and machines, moving in unison. It is like some beautiful fable that unfolds before your eyes in ways you could never have imagined. Keep in mind, were this a scene from a film, it would be all added by computers and MADE to look perfect, but this is live. This is real. This IS perfect. No CG. Just some remote controlled drones and some brilliant minds behind it all.
It is so mesmerizing it is hard to wrap your mind around.
It is actually quite reminiscent of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" but from Fantasia, where Mickey Mouse makes the brooms come to life, and then things get a little out of hand. This is like an adult version of that, only even more amazing to watch. Make sure to check out their YouTube page for more beautiful performances like Sparked.
