It has been a while since I’ve visited a Cirque du Soleil show and I was late with this one, catching Luzia as it is on it’s way out of Atlanta. But the good news is you can score tickets relatively easily now that the throngs of crowds have seen it.
The show begins with a clown like figure being dropped from the sky. Bereft of everything but the clothes on his back, mother nature taunts him – rainfall being just out of his reach to fill up his canteen.
As Luzia progresses, our clown reappears numerous times, interacting with the audience several times despite never speaking a word to us. Speaking of language, Luzia is in Spanish, but that doesn’t hinder the audience from following along.
Not only is the water feature a lovely addition, but there’s a beautiful array of pictures displayed as the water continues to rain down on the Cirque du Soleil stage.
As with any Cirque du Soleil performance, there are numerous circus-like activities like the juggler, trapeze artists and even animals, metal figures not real animals. In the second act, a contortionist, twists and turns his body in ways that don’t seem possible for a human body.
Excitement builds as pole artists climb higher and higher while dangling in precarious formations. If the show ended there, it would be have been a magnificent end. But it didn’t. For the finale, the audience was treated to flying acrobatic stunts from two giant see saws. How they land so gracefully, seems unimaginable. Check out my video from the Luzia Cirque du Soleil see saw performers below.
