“Forgotten Hollywood”- Enjoy the Holidays at Cirque du Soleil!

   If you would like to visit Hollywood during the Holidays, let me suggest you and your family stop by The Kodak Theatre. Returning to Southern California earlier this year, Cirque du Soleil is presenting IRIS. The innovative circus company debuted twenty years ago in Los Angeles.  They will now remain a permanent fixture at the Kodak.

   Iris has been crafted as a lesson about Hollywood history and its impact on the film industry (resembling a live version of the latest Martin Scorsese movie – Hugo), and features dancers and acrobats creating a cinematic delicacy through dance, stunts, video, film, and animation.  Recently, Cirque founder Guy Laliberté got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

  According to their website:

From illustration to animation, black and white to colour, silent films to talkies, fixed shots to swooping camera movements, spectators witness the poetic deconstruction of this art as an object and as a way of transcending reality.

Supporting the show’s kaleidoscope of movement, moods and images, composer Danny Elfman evokes the language of film music, magnifying the emotions of this surrealistic tribute of the seventh art – CINEMA.

   Here is a link to their site for ticket information:


   The Kodak Theatre is also home to a yearly event… the Academy Awards ceremony.
