Ep. 47: Under the Big Top with Cirque du Soleil BAZZAR

Cirque du Soleil BAZZAR is performing under the Big Top at Mall of America®. Our guests are Artistic Director Johnny Kim, and Duo Trapeze Artist Xander Taylor. BAZZAR is currently staged outside the north entrance of Mall of America and has been showered with rave reviews.

Johnny and Xander share their backgrounds and what life is like joining the circus. They can be on the road performing around the world for up to 45 weeks per year. They may be away from families, friends + home, but they find adventure and joy in exploring new cities, experiencing new cultures + meeting new people. Both have a long history of performing. In fact, Xander shares that prior to joining the circus he attended the “Hogwarts” for circus training in Montreal.

Both guests are quick to share that the Big Top experience is magical – audience members feel as though they are part of the show because it is such an intimate setting. In the case of BAZZAR, the audience truly helps bring the story together in an exciting ending.

BAZZAR invites audience members to discover a world where simple instruments and vocals create a dreamy music that blends with costumes inspired by different time periods. The array of breathtaking acts includes fire juggling, trapeze, rope artists, Indian pole, hair-suspension + tight wire performers.
