What to expect at LUZIA

LUZIA is a celebration of Mexican culture, with toe tapping tunes, jaw dropping acrobatics and a striking, surreal set. You’ll travel to different parts of the country - the desert, oceans and mountains - all without leaving your seat. It’s a visual feast in shades of blue. A giant disc on stage representing the sun and moon pays tribute to the Aztec Calendar. Impressively, a pool has also been integrated into this stage show. It’s whimsical for sure, but rich in symbolism.

Many feats are performed on giant treadmills, adding speed and movement to the act. They even have hoop diving, a traditional circus discipline from China in part of the show. One thing’s for certain, you’ll be holding your breath until these skilled performers land their stunts.

Why you should see this Cirque show

You’ve seen one Cirque du Soleil show, you’ve seen ‘em all, right? Luckily, that’s not the case. Each production rocks its own theme with a unique storyline, plus original stunts and set design. For the first time ever, water has been incorporated into a travelling show. And if you’ve never witnessed rain under the Big Top, it’s a sight to behold, especially when acrobatics are performed under this fluid element.

Like a Hollywood production sprung to life, everything from the intricate set design to whimsical costumes creates a magic atmosphere, where reality is suspended and you get the feeling almost anything can occur. This type of art is energetic, but also poetic, bringing forth many different emotions. It’s total escapism, and a delightful way to delve into the rich cultural tapestry of Mexico.

When can I see LUZIA?

LUZIA is a Big Top touring show, which means you won’t be able to see it in Vegas. But as luck would have it, it’s coming to Calgary for a limited time. Mark it in your calendar for August 16 through September 22, 2019, and be sure to snag your tickets before they sell out.
