Cirque du Soleil Luzia Extends Run in Atlanta by Three Weeks

Cirque du Soleil is excited to be adding three weeks of performances (October 17 – November 5) to the previously-announced Atlanta engagement of its delightfully imaginative and visually stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. Now from September 14 – November 5, 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.

Additional LUZIA performances from September 14 – November 5 are now available online exclusively to Cirque Club members through Friday, June 9, before being available to the general public. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits include access to advance tickets, special offers, and exclusive behind-the-scenes information. To join, visit www.cirqueclub.com. Public tickets for previously-announced Atlanta performances of LUZIA are available online atwww.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia. Tickets start at $35.

LUZIA – A waking dream of Mexico

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 in 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 cenote (natural sinkhole), and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.
