Last Laugh

Where Vancouver - - Entertainment -

Cor­teo is staged around a once-in-a-life­time event: the fu­neral of Mauro the clown. The colour­ful char­ac­ter dreams his own cir­cus-themed cel­e­bra­tion of life, which in­cludes ac­ro­bats bounc­ing off beds, a live mar­i­onette, aeri­al­ists swing­ing from chan­de­liers, and a per­former who floats above the crowd aided by gi­gan­tic he­lium bal­loons. It’s all the death-de­fy­ing feats, eye-catch­ing cos­tumes and mes­mer­iz­ing mu­sic that Cirque du Soleil (Oct. 10 to 14; listed be­low) is fa­mous for. Def­i­nitely worth adding to your bucket list.—Jill Von Sprecken
