What is the UniverSoul Circus about?
That’s what I was wondering, “What is the UniverSoul Circus about?” Well, I recently had a wonderful opportunity to see the show here in San Diego, CA. I went with a friend and my 17-year-old son. We really enjoyed this show! What an AMAZINGLY great time we all had!
My son is the typical teenage boy when it comes to talking with his mom now and he’s definitely not one that shows much excitement about anything around me but, I could see his movements of enjoying the music and just some of the awesome performances. He loves Asian culture. I could tell that he was really into those performances.
This was UniverSoul Circus’s 1st time coming to San Diego and they’ve been doing this for 19 years now! I am really hoping they come back next year for their 20th anniversary celebration. Those of us that had a chance to see them this time will surely tell more people now that we have experienced it. There’s no way people should miss it in the future.
The funny thing is, I have never really liked circuses. I took my children a few times when they were little but, only because I felt like I needed to do it for them. Once they seemed as though they didn’t have an interest, we stopped going. Had it not been for my friend Makena Hayes-Gargonnu being hand-picked to promote the event here, I would not have known about it, cause it surely didn’t get any press that I saw. Since it was truly a “Soulful” circus, it was so very entertaining!
What do I mean by Soulful? There was a bit of gospel music played with the intention of touching the souls of the audience. There was a team of youngsters with smiley face T-shirts “ : ) “ that danced around to lift everyone up and make them happy. The beautiful colors and costumes of the performers showed a representation of various cultures. As an African-American, this was a unique and beautiful experience to see so many people of color in a “circus”!
I didn’t film the magic but it surely was mind-blowing to see the ladies turned into a tiger right before our eyes! The video I created hopefully will encourage others to check this unique show out. So if you’re reading this, find out when UniverSoul Circus is coming your way and enjoy it! Share the video with some friends and tell them to not miss it with you!
