When the circus came to my town, they used to set up in the field I had to cross to get to school and I would creep around the tents and caravans that the performers stayed in, imagining my life in one of those grubby little caravans with my gorgeous circus husband and our tiny circus children.
My dreams were dashed when it finally dawned on me that I have no talents to speak of. So I just live vicariously through other circus people.
I have always wanted to see Cirque du Soleil and on Monday my dream is finally coming true! THE CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN!
Cirque is coming back to South Africa with their show Dralion, presented by T-Systems. Since it's first show, Dralion has wowed over 2,5 million people - that's FIVE MILLION EYEBALLS! And I'm about to add my eyeballs to that list.
Have a look at this video:
HOW AMAZING DOES THAT LOOK?! I apologise for the excessive use of capitals, but I am really that excited. Cirque started in 1984 with a group of 20 street performers and has now grown to over 5000 employees. Over 1300 of those are the talented performing artists from more than 50 different countries!
I've got a double set of tickets to give away to a lucky winner for the show on the 9th of March at the Grand West Casino in Cape Town.
How to enter:
Tweet me and tell me: If you could choose any circus job, what would it be?
Trapeze artist? Fire eater? Clown? I've always been a fan of tightrope walking, myself.
Remember to @NatalieRoos me and include the hashtag #TSystemsCirque to be eligible to win the tickets.
