Cirque De Soleil's newest show LUZIA is a tribute to Mexico. Experience a wondrous world where a waking dream transports you to an imaginary Mexico to explore your senses, enveloped in light and nurtured by rain. Cirque du Soleil unveiled the first excerpts of LUZIA with a press event under the BIg Top, in Montreal, Quebec April 2016. Cirque du Soleil 38th original production ‘LUZIA” is a touring show under the big top. The name LUZIA fuses the sound of “luz” (light in Spanish) and “lluvia” (rain), two elements at the core of the show’s creation. Drift away in A Waking Dream of Mexico presented under the Big Top.
The Inspiration Nature as a Metaphor using the Monarch butterfly. The Monarch embodies the deep connection between Canada and Mexico via its annual migration. Spreading its butterfly wings the running woman personifies the legendary speed of the Tarahumara people. The ode to surrealism is seen via the characters with the hummingbird head, right from Aztec mythology.
The Music Inspired by the cultural richness of Mexico, LUZIA features original music written by Canadian composer Simon Carpentier. The LUZIA album takes Carpentier’s original music written for a live acoustic setting and passes it through the filter of the electro-pop of Nortec Collective’s Bostich + Fussible, infused with brassy Mexican and Latin American sounds.
