Cirque du Soleil in Doha

The band blares,
The naphtha flares,
The sawdust smells,
Showmen ring bells,
And oh! right into the circus ring
Comes such a lovely, lovely thing….

“Circus” by Eleanor Farjeon

This past Saturday, I was able to watch the penultimate performance of Cirque du Soleil BAZZAR before the start of Ramadan. There was a circus tent set up across the canal from my place, and the Uber ride was less than $3. It couldn’t have been more convenient for me to attend this event — and I was glad that I did.

Here are some pictures from the performance. Apologies for the blurriness of some of the photos. I took them with my cellphone and edited them using Lightroom. The stage lighting and motion of the performers made it challenging to take clear pictures. However, I find that if I take enough pictures, there will always be a handful that I can work with.

Regardless, enjoy the pageantry and physicality of the photoset.
