Webb Tower Goes to Cirque du Soleil

On Friday, 36 Webb residents and friends attended the Corteo
performance by Cirque du Soleil at the Forum. The show depicted the
funeral procession for a deceased clown, featuring flying angels and
many circus acts. The acts ranged from the comical slap-stick humor to
amazing feats of flexibility and strength. Performers swung from
chandeliers, climbed unsupported ladders in mid-stage, back-flipped
with no hands across stage, and much more.

from R.A. Emily Hedges


This event was made possible by funding from URSC and the Webb Tower Building Government.
