Today I got news of a Cirque show that sits close to home. Cirque - Luzia!
Not much has actually been given to media outside of Toronto, Montreal and San Francisco, the 3 cities that the tour is already set to Tour, but I've managed to compile info from their website, Facebook and other online sources.
Their Facebook page describes it as "Discover LUZIA, where a waking dram transports you to an imaginary Mexico. Experience a wondrous world that inspires you to explore your senses, enveloped in light and nutured by rain." This leads me to believe that there's some "O" inspired acts coming to this show as they've proved an amazing success and delivery with this show for many years now.
A media release on their website gives this description: "LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul.
Freely inspired by Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of a country whose wealth stems from an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions – a land that inspires awe with its breathtaking landscapes and architectural wonders, buoyed by the indomitable spirit of its people. The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality."
I'm unsure if the fact that I'm Mexican makes me more excited about the review given by The Montreal Gazete: "Cirque Du Soleil's Luzia unveils a Mexican Dreamscape" you have to check out the article, it makes me want to go even more! "Directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, Luzia provides us with a glimpse into a dream-like Mexico that is simultaneously traditional and modern".
Calgary is not in their map yet to bring this show... But I really hope they do, the history and traditions that Luzia goes into, seemed perfect!
