Cirque du Soleil is coming to Vancouver with its production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. For the very first time in British Columbia, audiences are invited from October 3 to November 24, 2019 to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top at Concord Pacific Place.
Cirque du Soleil LUZIA in Vancouver
When: October 3 to November 24, 2019
Where: Concord Pacific Place
Tickets: Pre-sale tickets available now online to Cirque Club members. Tickets will be available online to the public as of Friday, May 10, 2019 at 10:00am with the ticket prices starting at $54.
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.
With mesmerizing and refreshing acrobatic performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Jaw-dropping highlights include a 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.
A waking dream of Mexico, 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.
UPDATE June, 2019: Performances are now scheduled October 3 to December 15, 2019.
