This week I was so very lucky enough to be invited to see Cavalia.
The best word I can think of to describe it is marvellous. I cheered, I clapped, I cried. It was that beautiful. I marvelled.
Not only the creativity and sheer skill, but relationship between horse and rider - it was tangible. You could see the mutual adoration. On top of that, the strength. I sat there, my jaw dropped, transfixed. And then add that these adults have shunned the perpetuated norms of society, and run away and joined the circus. What artful joy! I never wanted it to end.
It felt like a dream - and I am so grateful for having it.
Could Cavalia have invoked an epiphany for me? Gosh, I hope so.
Last night I felt like I was in The Princess Bride. And Willow. And Lord of the Rings. It is that magical.
The show sweeps you off your feet and into another world. I never want to come back.
We were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the stables. Now I want a pony. And a farm. And to get the heck out of Sydney and live a horsey life riding bareback and doing stunts - that's the life for me!
If you can - go see it. For the sheer dream fuel. For the beauty. And for me, to inspire me to exercise more so I can do a hand stand, on a horse, cantering.
You'll like it: If you want your breath taken away - to be transfixed by the sheer beauty of our equine friends, and the art, grace and humour of the performers.
When? Now until June 16

Disclosure: I attended the show as a guest of Cavalia. I had no obligation to blog about it. BUT I loved it so freaking much I had to tell you about it. I will only tell you about products/experiences that I genuinely love. Honesty is after all the best policy. I went, I loved it, I wanted to share.
