TORUK Presented by Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil’s newest touring show, TORUK – The First Flight, is inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR. TORUK – The First Flight will be at U.S. Bank Arena May 4-8, 2016, as part of a global tour presented by Visa Signature.
“TORUK – The First Flight is a completely different type of show for both Cirque du Soleil and entertainment as a whole,” said tour spokesperson Laura Silverman. “For Cirque du Soleil it is a lot of firsts – the first time presenting a show inspired by the movie, the first time having an English speaking narrator guide the audience, the first time incorporating puppeteers and large scale puppets as well as kites, and more!
“We are also using video projection and special effects in a new way. The entire stage and set are covered by projections (we have 40 projectors on tour) to bring the flora and fauna of Pandora to life and really create an immersive atmosphere.”
The show premiered in November 2015 in Montreal and will be in Louisville, Kentucky at the end of April 2016 before landing in Cincinnati on May 4.
“This is a great show for families! The story is easy to follow with the help of an English speaking narrator and it focuses on three young teenagers on a quest to save Pandora,” said Silverman. “Along with the colors, music, and spectacular visuals, it is a fantastic show for people of all ages! The puppets especially are always a hit amongst our youngest fans! They recognize them as being similar to animals they already know and the way the puppeteers bring the creatures to life is really inspiring.”
TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.
TORUK – The First Flight will be presented at the U.S. Bank Arena on May 4-8, 2016. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/toruk.
