Cirque du Soleil is finally bringing the Big Top experience to Orlando for the FIRST TIME since its beginnings in 1984. LUZIA- A waking dream of Mexico is the company’s 17th show to be presented under a Big Top. I, myself, have attended two of the other shows already, and am looking forward to seeing what this one has in store. (I am receiving tickets to review the show with my family.) The overall excitement of going to the circus, the otherworldly atmosphere of the Big Top, as well as its intimate setting elevate the Cirque du Soleil experience all around the world.
“LUZIA(…) is superb”
The Chicago Tribune
Escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality, with this breathtaking and heart-warming production. To watch a preview video of LUZIA, visit www.cirk.me/LUZIA_Preview.
Written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, in association with Brigitte Poupart, LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul.
With mesmerizing and refreshing acrobatic performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Cyr Wheel artists perform the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a Trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed. Jaw-dropping highlights include a male contortionist skillfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful Aerial Straps specialist defying the laws of gravity at the center of cenote (natural sinkhole), and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.
“Dazzle(s) the eye with luminous spectacle and gasp-worthy, derring-do.”
Bay Area News Group
In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry. Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.
