Yall, I am so excited about this show! For three days only James Cameron’s Avatar will come to life in the spectacular Cique Du Soleil show at Birmingham’s Legacy Arena. Mark you calendars for five breath taking performances from Friday, August 19 - Sunday, August 21. This is one show you are not going to want to miss! If the description of the show alone is keeping me on the edge of my seat, I can't imagine what the live performance is going to be like:
Through a riveting fusion of cutting‐edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.
Set thousands of years before the events depicted in AVATAR, The story of TORUK – The First Flight follows the show’s heroes, Ralu and Entu, as they set out on a quest to save the Tree of Souls. They venture high up in the Floating Mountains to find Toruk, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.
This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.
I've been anxious to experience a Cirque Du Soleil performance for as long as I can remember. I'm in awe at the movements these performers are able to effortlessly perform! From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is a major Québec‐based organization providing high‐quality artistic entertainment. The company has close to 4,000 employees, including 1,300 artists from more than 50 different countries.
