Cirque du Soleil in Cedar Rapids

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cirque du Soleil is in Eastern Iowa and KWWL got a sneak peak inside rehearsals. Quidam will be performed at the new U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids. The show has been running since 1996 and performers say it's one of Cirque du Soleil's flagship shows. There's 52 people in the cast that perform the tricks and acrobatic skills Cirque du Soleil is known for.

"The idea is really to make the audience feel like we could be any one of them," said Tonya Burka, Aerial Acrobat. "We're totally people with normal thoughts and emotions, we just happen to do a lot of flips."

 

Cirque du Soleil has five performances in Cedar Rapids. Tickets are still available for all shows.
