Wintertime, specifically a couple of weeks after the holiday hubbub has fully settled down, and a chill, even in Southern California, has settled in, life can feel a little low energy.
Syrupy, even, and definitely slow. But a spectacular is springing into town on Jan. 18, and when we say "springing" we mean "back-flipping" or even "hands-free cartwheeling," all to deliver some pep to our winter dormancy.
It's Cirque du Soleil's "VOLTA," an under-the-big-op treat that takes its inspiration from the world of go-go-go street sports.
What to do, where to go and what to see
Making its sporting location a perfect fit: Dodger Stadium.
While traditional baseball antics won't be on the roster, there shall be some high-flying BMX action inside the tent, and don't-blink rope skipping, and shape diving, too. (Indeed, that involves acrobats leaping through small shapes at astounding speeds.)
As is tradition with the troupe, which traces its fanciful, clown-smart roots back to the Montreal of the 1980s, there will be a moving tale to tell, too.
It's a tale grounded in the nature of transformation, a fitting theme to help launch the new year.
The show "... is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one's true potential, and recognizing the power to make it possible," is the uplifting, message-strong word from the Cirque staffers.
Be emboldened by this spirit of self-acceptance from Jan. 18 through Feb. 23, under the troupe's now-iconic big top, at Dodger Stadium.
And, for sure, the BMXers, and all of the talented athletes, acrobats, and artists, will head for Orange County near the start of spring.
