In 2013 I attended my very first Cirque du Soleil with my husband when Totem came to Ottawa. We were blown away and swore if Cirque du Soleil ever came back we would be there.
Well, that time has come and on June 29th Cirque du Soleil TORUK ~ The First Flight Coming begins its run in Ottawa. I Will not be able to attend with my husband as he will be working. Instead, I will get to bring my children to their very first Cirque du Soleil show.
To say I am excited is an understatement. I can not wait to experience the magic of Cirque du Soleil TORUK ~ The First Flight through the eyes of my children.
About Cirque Du Soleil TORUK ~ The First Flight
TORUK – The First Flight is a live immersive multimedia spectacle that brings to the stage the breathtaking world of James Cameron’s AVATAR as you have never seen it before.
Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry, and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.
This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.
Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora.
When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.
