Cirque du Soleil's Dralion: Backstage with Jonathan Morin

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 6:17 PM

Between now and next Wednesday's first staging of Dralion at the World Arena, I'll be bringing you some extra behind-the-scenes looks at Cirque du Soleil from my trip, with photographer Matthew Schniper, up to the show in Loveland two weeks ago.

Backstage at Cirque ...

If you haven't read my story, which ran in today's paper, start here.

One of the performers I mention in the piece is Jonathan Morin. We got to watch him rehearse, and all I can say is he's amazing. He developed his "crossed wheel" contraption himself, and is constantly pushing himself to move in different ways with it.

Check out Matthew's photos of Morin in this slideshow and then watch this short video of him rehearsing current moves and testing out new ones.

And watch the IndyBlog for more. We'll be posting throughout the weekend.
