Tickets on pre-sale exclusively to Cirque Club members General on-sale begins Friday, May 10 at 10:00 a.m.
Cirque du Soleil is coming to Vancouver with its delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning production LUZIA , a waking dream of Mexico. For the very first time in British Columbia, audiences are invited from October 3 – November 24, 2019 to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top at Concord Pacific Place to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world suspended between dreams and reality.
In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world 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.
“LUZIA(…) is superb” The Chicago Tribune
“ Dazzle(s) the eye with luminous spectacle and gasp-worthy, derring-do. ”
Bay Area News Group
“full of wow feats and gorgeous stage pictures” The Toronto Star
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 a cenote (natural sinkhole), a juggler tossing seven pins at breakneck speed, and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulation.
