Friday night, CirqueLouis' production of Pinocchio dazzled the sold out crowd at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts' Bomhard Theater. I have been excited to see this show ever since I filmed the promotional video back in early November. While at the time choreography was still in a "draft" state, I knew that the show was going to be great and I could not wait to see and photograph the final production!
Incredible costumes and make-up complimented the already amazingly talented performers flying through the air in their rendition of the century old Italian fairy tale classic. The level of detail that went into each character's appearance was on a level never before reached by CirqueLouis. Creative director Christine Moondancer's has true talent for costume design. It's incredible to see her visions come to life. Make-up artist Katrina Gay spent roughly six hours getting everyone's make-up on prior to the show. She then followed up those long hours by touching up faces as needed throughout the show and then going out on stage herself to perform in the Land of Merriment scene in Act 2!
It has been incredible to watch CirqueLouis explode onto the Louisville Performing Arts scene in its short year and half long history! Congratulations to Christine Moondancer, Abbie Springer, Lynley Elliot, and the rest of the CirqueLouis cast and crew on another incredible performance! I cannot wait to see what new tricks they have up their sleeves for their next show in June 2017!
