A new live show/experience. A cast of world class Cirque du Soleil artists interact with animation, video projection, lasers, illusions and puppetry. A gothic fairytale from future history set in an alternate reality and told through the unbridled imagination and creativity of a child.
Performed only three times so far for an exclusive audience of Cirque du Soleil executives, Secret Show has already received a mind blowing response.
Secret Show is what might happen if certain art forms, dance styles and music genres had occurred or existed within a different time period, location, or perspective. An alternative reality, a "future history" of art and movement...
Leonardo Da Vinci spray paints his name in dripping neon black, across the side of a horse drawn carriage as it clatters past, silhouetted for a split second by an illegal video projection on the palace behind him.
Inside, an excited young Mozart composes a master work on the beams of his new laser violin. The human piano and its souls can wait...
...Oliver Twist and his crew of orphan pick-pockets breakdance on the cobbled streets of Dickensian London, the blacklight of the ultra violet gas lamps illuminates only glimpses of white on their stained teeth.
Imaginary Friends Joel Sebastian and Mukhtar OS Mukhtar are artists in Cirque du Soleil's triple Grammy award winning LOVE show. Joel has won awards from Cirque du Soleil's annual creativity competition; Les Talons Hauts for three projects, including 1st place, while Mukhtar has choreographed for Cirque du Soleil special events, the Olympics, and led his crew "Plague" to victory in the World Hip Hop Championships in 2005. They concepted, directed, and imagined everything in Secret Show and hope you like the trailer.

"We artists are indestructible; even in a prison, or in a concentration camp, I would be almighty in my own world of art, even if I had to paint my pictures with my wet tongue on the dusty floor of my cell."
