KÀ Cirque du Soleil Reviews

“KÀ is an unusually beautiful and stylistically cohesive Cirque production. And Mr. Lepage and his collaborators have indeed wrapped a typically eclectic variety of athletic and acrobatic feats in a crisp narrative package.”
- The New York Times

“It’s safe to say you won’t soon forget many of these truly dangerous-seeming images — or the explosive finale. Yet amid all this spectacle there are quiet, subtle moments — a poignant bit of shadow puppetry, a sweetly comic dance by seashore creatures, a breath-stopping baton-twirling dance— that may remain with you longer. It’s this cherishing of these simplest of theatrical elements that is the essence of Cirque shows.”
