Some references... Simon West
CIRQUE du SOLEIL
Simon was one of two walkabout magicians in the Central City Circus troupe which performed for Cirque du Soleil's Cast & Crew Masquerade party in Auckland 2009. Rowenna Jeffries from Cirque wrote this very nice reference.
"Performing in the company of some of the world's leading circus entertainers at Cirque du Soleil, the Central City Circus artists certainly 'held their own' and provided hours of skilled entertainment to an appreciative and discerning audience."
Continuous positive feedback pertaining to the event indicated that the magic was kept alive long after the shows had concluded, and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to re-employ the services of this talented and dedicated group should I be travelling and working in Auckland in the future. I will certainly recommend them to other tours within Cirque du Soleil should they visit Auckland and plan a social event of this calibre."
"Simon has taught and performed at Circulation Circus and Music festival for a
number of years. As a highly skilled performer, his acts in the Public Shows have
always been well received and a talking point afterwards.
His lively and entertaining personality brings a unique flavour to the festival and his
teaching style appeals to a wide range of our festival goers, I would recommend him
to energize any event."

Thank you so much for your fantastic workshop!
The children were enthralled from the minute they walked into the room - who would've thought that one ball could hold the attention of so many!
Your performance and talk was very well suited to our question "what do artists contribute to society" and I heard many children commenting that you were now their favourite artist.
We wish you all the best in your endeavors.
