We are excited to be offering an evening in Alicante at the World famous Cirque du Soleil. Beforehand we will give you time in the city to enjoy a meal, or go for drinks, before taking you off to see this fabulous Circus. “Circus of the sun” is a Canadian entertainment company – it´s the largest theatrical producer in the world! It´s theatrical, character-driven approach, and the absence of performing animals, helped define it as the contemporary circus that it remains today. Each show is a Synthesis of circus styles from around the world, with it´s own Central theme and storyline.
The show in Alicante is titled TOTEM and follows the story of the human species from original, amphibian state to the ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on stage, evoking a giant turtle – the symbol of origin for many, ancient civilisations.
TOTEM explores the ties that bind man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.
- Fixed trapeze duo – like two lovebirds a young man and woman tease, play and sulk in an innocent game of seduction, before their bodies intertwine in a vertical dance of fresh, unusual movements and lifts.
- Amerindian Dance – As the drum keeps time, a young Amerindian dancer evokes myths, legends and the everlasting circle of life.
- Roller Skates – In a scene that evokes a wedding ceremony, a pair of roller skaters spin and whirl at heart-stopping speeds a-top a tiny platform just 1.8 metres in diameter.
- Russian bars – Wearing costumes inspired in part by the lost civilisations of South America – acrobats leap from one bar to the next with astonishing agility in a thrilling evocation of the human desire to escape the earth´s gravity
…..but let´s not spoil the show…..go….let your senses awaken….and enjoy…..
