For my birthday (along with 6 opera DVDs), Jeff treated me to a Cirque du Soleil show at the Hoffman Estates on Sunday. Dralion… It’s styled up to be some kind of an East meets West acrobatics, complete with the usual Chinese contortionist acts. There were the aerial hoop and the silks, which re-inspired me to take up a silks class. And there was the incredible human pyramid jumping rope act.

But my favorite act was the trampoline. These gymnasts would bounce as if weightlessly off the trampoline, onto an adjacent wall which they would walk up.
