Cirque du Soleil: Quidam May 7-9

Cirque du Soleil: Quidam is coming to Savannah next week for three shows at the Civic Center. The fun starts May 7 at 7:30 p.m., with evening shows Wednesday and Thursday night as well. To purchase tickets, click here.

We sat down with Cirque du Soleil spokesperson Jessica LaBeouf and Cirque du Soleil performer Adrienn Banhegyi to learn more about Cirque du Soleil, the Quidiam story and what it really takes to be a performer.

South: How did Cirque du Soleil start?
Jessica LaBeouf: Cirque du Soleil is a company that is almost 30 years old now. In the ’80s, when it started, it was just a little group of street performers like stilt walkers, fire jugglers and fire breathers. They had this idea to mix those art forms with different ones to be like a traditional circus with street performances and theatre and costumes and make up and all of that to put it together in a genre of entertainment. It’s not a musical, it’s not a circus, it’s not a theatre—it’s everything. We chose not to go with animals at all in the circus, but to really focus on the human body—dress it up nicely, bend it backward, put it in the air, spin it around and see how far we could go with that. And then as technology evolved, it opened up other doors with the video interaction and the stage revolving. It’s quite amazing. With the Quidam set, the actual stage is a turntable. All of the 20 shows that Cirque du Soleil has are completely different from one to another. There is only one Quidam. If you want see Quidam, you have to come to savannah and see it. It’s not going to be playing elsewhere.

Gulfstream’s Live Well. Be Well.
Presents Suze Orman

Suze Orman received a standing ovation before she even took the stage at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Saturday as part of Gulfstream’s Live Well. Be Well. lecture series. The packed audience, made up of Gulfstream staffers and members of the Savannah community, was on its feet as one of America’s most influential and beloved financial advisors was introduced by Gulfstream’s CFO, Jason Aiken. In true rock star fashion, Orman stepped out front and center, foregoing the podium, clad in all-black and high heeled boots, and flashed her megawatt grin and trademark short blonde ‘do. Her charisma, sincerity and smarts were just as palpable in this crowded venue as they are when she speaks directly to the camera every Saturday night on The Suze Orman Show.

Some of us are thinking Spring Break, the beaches, picnics surrounded by blooming azaleas, dogwoods and redbuds, but for the dedicated outdoor enthusiast spring means one thing—turkey season.

A household name, Harley-Davidson has been producing motorcycles since 1903 when three men from Milwaukee had a vision of what motorized bicycling should be like. Arthur, Walter and later William Davidson, along with Bill Harley, created the first bike in a shed with borrowed tools and scrap metal. Now, many years later Harley-Davidson is sold around the continent to customers who love and admire them.
