I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek behind the scenes at Cirque du Soleil La Nouba at Disney Springs as Trapeze artists prepare for a performance of a lifetime!

During a live show on Thursday, March 31STCirque du Soleil’s La Nouba, in partnership with Experience Kissimmee, will stream LIVE via Facebook Live and Periscope as the energetic Trapeze troupe attempts two (2) rarely performed tricks that only a handful of Trapeze artists have accomplished. The “Double & ½ Layout to the Legs” is an extremely skillful maneuver that includes a 2 ½ backward layout with a twist, all performed within seconds before the artists is caught by his legs. The second trick will be a “Quadruple” layout, which is rumored to be completed less than 20 times in the 150 year history of Trapeze.

“We are delighted to partner with Experience Kissimmee as we bring this rare performance to life via Facebook Live,” said Neil Boyd, Company Manager for La Nouba. “This collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and Experience Kissimmee allows for a new, emerging way to engage fans during our attempt at feats that are not common to the show.”
