Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away

Synopsis: A young woman in a small Mid-Western town goes to a traveling carnival one evening, where she is urged by a silent clown to visit the carnival's circus and see The Aerialist, the show's star attraction. She is entranced by The Aerialist, but during his act he misses a catch and falls to the ground. She rushes to help him, but then the ground beneath them gives way and they fall through into the dreamlike world of Cirque du Soleil. Separated, they travel through the different tent worlds trying to find each other, interacting with the strange and wonderful performers and performances of Cirque du Soleil.

No way.

Come on up.

Feed the clowns, lady.

For $3, everybody wins a prize.

Feed 'em up.

Here, hon. Here, hon.

Feed those clowns!

Hey, here, boys.

Come here, boys.

All right!

Hey, lover boy!

Quit eyein' up the jills.

Go get ready!

Keep moving, missy.

Right this way...

Hey, hey, hey.

All right.

No, thank you.

The road to excitement

starts right through

these doors.

The world's strongest man!

And jugglers!

The terrifying face mangler!

Unicyclists and our main acts,

which you have to see

to believe.

Can you feel the heat,

ladies and gentlemen?

Prepare to be amazed,


Titillated and amused.

From all corners of the globe,

the deepest jungles,

the driest deserts,

the highest mountains,

we've got you

the best of the best,

the greatest of the great,

the most marvelous

of all the marvels.

Our jugglers were trained in

the royal courts of the czars.

Our beauties were chosen

from the finest

Europe has to offer.

So sit back,


and get ready

for Circus Marvelous!

And now, ladies and gentlemen,

the moment you've

all been waiting for.

No noise.

No photographs.

Let your heads and minds fly

with a man

who defies gravity.

Who defies science.

Who defies your imagination.

Our one,

our only








Do you know him?

Have you seen...
