David Resnick is a happy acrobat.  He’s a member of Cirque du Soleil, currently in Melbourne performing in TOTEM at the big top at Docklands. “I play two different characters – the Crystal Man, also known as Mirror Man and I also play a frog,” he says. “They are both so different.

“Most people's backs hurt because they're hunched over a computer. Mine hurts because I ran too hard into a giant wall,” says Lee Brearley, looking like he loves life. “I feel really lucky to be part of something like this.
