Luzia subtitled A Waking Dream of Mexico, Cirque du Soleil’s latest production takes audiences on a journey through Mexico using light and rain themes. Audiences will learn about Mexican culture and experience some of Cirque’s signature entertainment like jaw-dropping acrobatics, music and time-traveling clowns. Here are just a few reasons to see the newest show:
While Luzia takes you to an imaginary Mexico, audiences will still learn about Mexican culture. Experience Mexican mythology and tradition through arts and crafts and surrealistic animals throughout the production.
With more than a dozen acts full of Cirque’s acrobatics, feats of strength and dancing, Luzia includes world-class performers who push boundaries and create thrills for audiences in a way they’ve never experienced. The show allows for each artist to showcase their skills in their own artistic way.
You certainly won’t get bored watching Luzia. The show creates an array of settings in Mexico from an old movie set to the ocean to the semi-desert to an undersea world to the jungle to a city alleyway to a dance salon and more. While doing so you’ll experience the past, present, tradition and modernity of the country.
Unique Stage Design
To incorporate the many settings and the elements of light and water, Luzia’s stage includes two turntables, a treadmill, elaborate puppets, and an onstage rainstorm. You read that right - a rain storm, which brings us to our final reason to see Luzia.
Water plays a huge role in Luzia. In fact, it is the first time in Cirque history that there is actual rainfall. During the Cyr act, it begins to rain and then water begins to pour through a water curtain. The water reappears multiple times and even becomes a cascade of changing patterns. It’s really quite beautiful.
