The Denver engagement of Cirque du Soleil’s delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning production “Luzia” is coming to an end. On Sunday, July 9, the cast and crew will wrap-up their last performances under the Big Top next to Pepsi Center, and move to Chicago, IL. Tickets for the last two weeks of performances of Luzia in Denver are available online at www.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia.
Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, Luzia takes audiences to an imaginary México – a sumptuous world suspended between dreams and reality. 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 México 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 performances, Luzia brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new 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, and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.
