Saltimbanco














Cirque Du Soleil's Saltimbanco opens tonight, in Sydney, before it's enormous arena tour around the world. I'm sending a massive CHOOKAS to my friend Charlie Jones, who is the first Australian singer to sing this particular show, and one of a only a couple of Australian singers working for Cirque. Very proud.

I spoke to Charlie earlier today, and I thought I'd share with you what she had to say:

"It's phenomenal to work with such dedicated people, 
and every day, I am still amazed at what the acrobats can do. 
Their level of focus is admirable.
 Also, singing in a universal language is extremely freeing as an artist."

Sending big love to Charlie and wishing all involved with the production a great opening night and wonderful world tour.

I saw the show yesterday --honestly one of the best things I've ever seen. I may have spent a little too much on the merch after as well. He he.
