"Q" is for Quidam

Well it's "Q" day on the A to Z challenge. Wasn't looking forward to it. I thought of some of the "Q" words that I could use, 'question', 'quotient', 'quota', 'quill', 'quality' but nothing moved me.

Then, I saw this article about Cirque du Soleil and one of their latest shows "Quidam". I got a chance to see this show when it was first released in the 90's. It was my first time seeing a Cirque du Soleil performance.

It turned me into a five year old child again, I was so in awe. It was like nothing I had ever seen before, I felt like I had been transported to another world.
The stunts and the acrobatics seemed impossible.

The article was about the remake and return of this performance for a new audience.

"Quidam" was the word that I wanted to use. I even love the way it sounds. I looked up the translation and definition and it means: A nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past, one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. I love the last part "one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all"

"Q" is for Cirque du Soleil's Quidam
