Review Le Cirque Invisible For Us!

cirqueinvisible.jpg Illusion, magic, make-believe and trompe-l'œil comes to the Queen Elizabeth Hall this week with a summer season of Cirque Nouveau in the shape of Le Cirque Invisible, the fantastical, fun production last seen in London in 1996 from Jean-Baptiste Thierrée and Victoria Chaplin (yes, the surname might ring a bell).

There's so much going on right now that we can't get a reviewer to the show. We need your help! If you'd like to go and see the Cirque with a friend for free on either Friday 7 or Saturday 8 August, email londonist@gmail.com now and tell us why you've always wanted to join the circus. We'll pick the best answer by Tuesday evening and email you to let you know. If you're selected, just email us afterwarsd saying what you thought of the thing. We don't mind if it's purple prose or just breathless notes - what you think and feel about the thing is what's important.

Le Cirque Invisible runs Tuesday 4 - Sunday 23 August at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, 2.30pm (matinee Wednesday and Sunday) 7.30pm, Tickets: £28 / £22 /£15

If you don't get selected, you can still obtain a special 2 for 1 deal on top price tickets (usually £28) of half price tickets to the Cirque - just call 0871 663 2500 and mention Londonist web offer. This offer is valid for performances between 4 - 11 August (excl 9 & 10 Aug). The offer can’t be used in conjunction with other ticket offers and is subject to availability.

Congratulations to Ruth, who said this:

I begged and pleaded with my parents to buy me a unicycle when I was little. I never managed to get my balance enough to ride it though, so my Mum's fears that I was going to run away to the circus subsided, and I took a sensible job in architecture. Now I'm surrounded by more clowns, show ponies and dancing chimps than I'd ever have worked with in a Big Top.

Thanks to everyone else who shared their circus dreams with us! Hope you get to enjoy the show too.
