The Luxury of Trust

In collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, Ze Frank drops a pebble in the pond that is the collective human search for community, connection, and belonging. And in that search, we must all begin with trust.

“Trust is a confusing thing. It seems so simple; but when you try to pin it down it’s elusive.” narrates Ze.

The allegory of trust exists in the steady equilibrium of the practiced arms and braced feet of Cirque du Soleil acrobats, Alya and Gael. As acrobats – and anyone who has seen a Cirque du Soleil production knows – they literally put their lives in someone else’s hands.


Trust is your relationship to the unknown – what you can’t control.

And you can’t control everything.

And it’s not all or none.

It’s a slow and steady practice of learning about the capacity of the world.

And it’s worth it to keep trying.

And it’s not easy.
