Cirque du Soleil At The Circus

cirque.png Our new editor is gearing up for her first trip to Mediabistro Circus on June 2-3 and excitement couldn’t be higher around here.

But just wait until the incredible performers of Cirque du Soleil take the stage on the last day of the Circus. Nothing makes us happier than acrobatic feats or displays of physical skill, like these two on the left, performing a tango on a unicycle (!) — and we’ve been assured they will be there next week.

Cirque du Soleil director of creation Carmen Ruest will also be on hand, speaking about turning a small company into the tumbling world-wide franchise it is today. And of course there will be tons of other fun speakers like Fiona Spruill of The New York Times and John Byrne, executive editor/editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek.com.

Come meet us there!
