week­end is thrilled to bring you a first this week, an ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity to see the cast of Cirque du Soleil out and about in the Queens­land cap­i­tal. Pho­tograph­ing the troupe out­side the big top has only been done in a few cities around the world, and plan­ning for the Bris­bane re­veal be­gan in Jan­uary. Lo­ca­tions were con­sid­ered, cast mem­bers cho­sen and the big guy up­stairs put on no­tice to give us sun­shine. Cirque’s lat­est show Totem, which opens in Bris­bane on Fri­day, ex­plores the theme of evo­lu­tion and it’s a par­tic­u­larly neat fit for Qweek­end as the show’s cos­tume designer, Kym Bar­rett, is not only Bris­bane-born and raised but she graced the cover of our launch is­sue back in 2005. Bar­rett, whom we named as one to watch a decade ago, now lives in Los An­ge­les and her ca­reer tra­jec­tory has been ev­ery bit as spec­tac­u­lar as the sump­tu­ous cos­tumes she cre­ates.
