WHAT IS LUZIA?


Luzia is Cirque du Soleil's show about Mexico-- and it is one of 18 shows that Cirque du Soleil currently has performing around the world (with more coming all the time)

Freely inspired by the rich traditions and culture of Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of the country to our South, and has many more aspects, ideas, and a deepness of thought and spirit that are not usually reflected in contemporary portrayals of Mexico.

Instead of representing Mexico in a realistic fashion, the creative team of LUZIA decided to create an evocation of the country. They imagined a dream woven from memories, experiences and encounters, laden with inspirations deeply rooted in Mexican identity.  The dream appears through a series of fragments- slivers of the country, rather than explanations.  “A fragment is like a pebble you slip in your pocket, keep close to your heart and safeguard like a cherished memory”, explains show director Daniel Finzi Pasca. These small details are the building blocks of the colorful mosaic that is LUZIA.


The name LUZIA fuses the sound of “luz” (light in Spanish) and “lluvia” (rain), two elements at the core of the show’s creation.

Rain is an inspiration for the show.  This is the first time that water has been used by Cirque in a Big Top Show.  It presented a number of challenges and possibilities.  The video and photos that I have seen look awesome.  The show's director, Daniel Finzi Pasca, used the idea of rain in a show previously for Cirque Eloize, which I saw at the New Victory Theatre a long while back.  the show was awesome then, and I'm sure he's got a few more tricks up his sleeves.

Expect as well a routine about soccer, mind-blowing contortion and gymnastics, amazing lights, costumes, sets, and sound, and of course a clown or three.  And there's at least one clown scuba-diving act, which looks like a lot of fun.

I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing any Cirque du Soleil shows. If I win, this would be my first time. Thank you for the chance.
