Hello again all,

So is everyone familiar here with Cirque Du Soleil?? I'm a big fan of their shows. I've seen a few here locally when they're in town (which they have a brand new show coming to OC/LA area very soon), and I've seen three of their shows in Las Vegas: Mystere, O, and the latesst one (and best one) KA. GREAT SHOWS, and great group of very talented performers; which has lead me to ask...

After watching a few clips on youtube...I came across some pretty cool indoor shows that iQuad put on and couldnt help but picture that type of show in one of these Cirque Du Soleil shows. Just the things this team could do with their kites, I'm sure all the members have the ability to apply the precision and grace similar to many found in a Cirque Du Soleil Show....sooooo...has anyone every thought of doing anything like that? or by any off chance has any Cirque Du Soleil reps approached you about anything like that? Just curious because I would be dazzled and amazed to see something like that in their shows. I would assume the graceful flight of the kites could be very easily implemented into one of their programs.

-Johnny
