In my opinion, there is nothing more exciting than the feeling you are left with, after watching a live performance such as in a circus or a theater. One of my favorite things about Cirque du Soleil, is the fact that they combine both worlds (circus and theater) with spectacular stories, which tend to include colorful interpretations and themes. That is why I am very excited to share the information in the upcoming show LUZIA, which will be arriving to Atlanta, GA this Fall 2017. If you live in Atlanta or the surrounding areas, this might be a great opportunity to enjoy this event with the whole family. Know someone who lives there and would like to go too? We would appreciate if you shared this information with them. Find more about this event, and watch the official trailer of yet another inspirational show by the talented performers of Cirque du Soleil.

Experience the splendor and wonders of
LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico!

Cirque du Soleil’s astounding production opens in Atlanta on September 14, 2017
under the white-and-gold Big Top at Atlantic Station

Exclusive Pre-Sale for Cirque Club Members starts TODAY!
Public Tickets available April 21, 2017

Atlanta, GA (April 10, 2017)Cirque du Soleil is coming to Atlanta with its delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. From September 14 – October 15, 2017, audiences are invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top at Atlantic Station to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality. 

Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey 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 artistic and acrobatic level. 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. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed. Jaw-dropping highlights include a Guinness World Record holder juggling seven pins at breakneck speeds, a male 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), and two fύtbol (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.

  • Tickets for LUZIA are available online exclusively to Cirque Club members starting today. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind-the-scenes information. To join, visit www.cirqueclub.com

LUZIA – 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.

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.

The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality. Featuring a cast of 44 performers from diverse artistic backgrounds, LUZIA surprises with acrobatic performances breaking down the barriers, such as incorporating water into contemporary circus disciplines.
