Yay for Quidam!
19 July 2002 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I love Quidam. I went to go see it when I was 13, and fell in love. The performers are outstanding, and the music is perfect. I love circuses, and after the video came out, I instantly went and bought it. The video is great, and even though some of the camera angles don't always show the best picture, it is worth the money. If you like Quidam, don't forget about Dralion, Nouvelle Expérience, Saltimbanco, Alegria, and Journey of Man. All of those listed are exceptional, and I give them all 10 stars!
