'Secret Show' is a new live show where performance art meets technology. A cast of world class Cirque du Soleil artists interact with animation, video projection, lasers, illusions and puppetry for this event. It is a fairytale from the future told through the unbridled imagination and creativity of a child.

Joel Sebastian and Mukhtar OS Mukhtar are both artists in Cirque du Soleil's 'The Beatles LOVE' and created 'Secret Show' in a two car garage. They realized that dance and theatre should stop trying to compete with movies and instead team up with art, video projection, special effects, optical illusion and puppetry to create a new genre of live show.

To bring Secret Show up-to-date and into the future, the art forms featured are more those that the new generation might search for on YouTube including parkour, b-boying, street dance and stop motion animation. Secret Show is unlike any of the traditional circus acts that you may have seen before. Stats for Laser Illusion Circuses Trending: Older & Warm
