At some point in our lives, we’ve all probably been to a circus before. Cirque du Soleil has been amazing people with their modern version of the circus for decades now. I once heard that what people love about the circus is the mixture of surprise and admiration it brings to audiences.
P!nk, Robert, Geovanny, Edgar and Kareem have all found a special way of bringing an outside passion and talent into their work in a way that no one else can replicate. They’ve brought surprise and admiration to it. This is a magic we are all capable of creating.
As P.T. Barnum once said, “No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.”
