Cirque de Soleil is holding court at Staples Center for a limited run, and LAist had a chance Thursday night to catch a sneak preview its latest music-dance-acrobatic-video show “Delirium.”

According to the Cirque du Soleil website:

DELIRIUM is the quest for balance in a world that is increasingly out of sync with reality. It pushes the limit of arena performance through technical magnitude, human introspection and creative prowess.

Basically, the self-billed "live music concert" follows the adventures of a flier named Bill who’s dangling from a hot-air balloon for most of the performance. As in most Cirque shows, the acrobats were amazing and the visuals over-stimulated the senses. But this circus definitely isn’t for everyone.
