Is it just me or did the summer kind of sneak up? And now BOOM we’re in July! I’m already getting emails about back to school when all I want to do is sit by the pool and watch the kids play in the sand all day. School hasn’t been out for even a month yet and our family calendar has been full of lots of fun activities, like attending the Boston premiere of LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil, a waking dream of Mexico a couple of weeks ago. We’ve seen Cirque du Soleil a couple of times before when they’ve come to Boston, but this was by far our favorite show. We can’t stop talking about it!
LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul.
Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere 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 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.
Once the show started our eyes were glued to the stage and the amazing performers. I’m pretty sure my mouth was on the floor most of the show as I watched in awe bodies move and twist in ways that I never imagined. The strength the performers have was breathtaking and inspiring. Coupled with bright colors, constant movement and beautiful music, it was an experience I’d never had before. The show was brilliant, humorous, sensual, inspiring and stunning. The costumes, music and set design were all nsync and made for an unforgettable show.
One of our favorite parts of the performance was the inclusion of water, which was a source of inspiration and a first at a Big Top Cirque du Soleil show. It was EPIC. It was absolutely beautiful.
The LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil team hit this show out of the park. From the running butterfly woman to cyr wheel and trapeze to the beach clown to incredible aerial work it’s a show you won’t forget. It’s so hard NOT to share more, but trust me, you’ll want to SEE it for yourself!
