In the Spotlight: Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia
July 28 to October 2, 2016 at The Port Lands. ShareThis
Cirque du Soleil’s spectacular new production takes place under the Big Top near Toronto’s waterfront.
The name LUZIA fuses the sound of “luz” (which means light in Spanish) and “lluvia” (rain), two elements at the core of the show’s creation.
LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul. Freely inspired by Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of a country whose wealth stems from an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions – a land that inspires awe with its breathtaking landscapes and architectural wonders, buoyed by the indomitable spirit of its people.
With a cast of 44 artists from 15 different countries the tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality the way only Cirque du Soleil can.
