Cirque du Soleil, the internationally renowned troupe of acrobats, dancers, contortionists, gymnasts, and circus-like performers, has finally set up a permanent show in Los Angeles, and the show couldn't have a better theme: filmmaking.
In its rollout of “IRIS: A Journey Through the World of Cinema,” the Cirque has appropriately chosen Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre as its tent, which some of you may know as the setting for the Oscars.
In fact, when the Academy Awards ceremony starts to prepare for its February 26 telecast next year, the show will take its annual hiatus, from January 23 to March 27.
