A WAKING DREAM OF MEXICO
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 a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.
Water as a source of inspiration
Integrating the element of water adds a level of acrobatic complexity never-before-seen under the Big Top at Cirque du Soleil.
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.
A set of multiple faces
LUZIA takes audiences from an old movie set to the ocean to the semi-desert to an undersea world to a cenote to the jungle to a city alleyway to a dance salon –
passing smoothly from an urban setting to the natural world, past to present, tradition to modernity.
The fascination of the Mexican people for the animal world is as evident in the country’s traditions and mythology as it is in its traditional arts and crafts.
The world of LUZIA is populated by surrealistic animals of all sizes.
