Cirque du Soleil returns to Australia with its critically acclaimed big top production “Luzia” – Returning to the Entertainment Quarter November 2024 – January 2025.

CELEBRATING CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY IN AUSTRALIA

Featuring breathtaking acrobatic performances and the first rain curtain on a touring show, LUZIA takes audiences on a surreal escape to an imaginary Mexico.

LUZIA is inspired by the people, places, and stories that define Mexico. Take a journey through a dream of Mexico, from the folklore of old to the urban landscape of today. 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. With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.

Cirque du Soleil’s big top is returning to Australia with its critically acclaimed and jaw-dropping production of LUZIA, for a 2024-2025 national tour, visiting Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney. These performances will highlight the 25th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil in Australia.

Written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, LUZIA invites you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA till take the  ustralian audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry. 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.

“We are thrilled to finally bring LUZIA to Australia and celebrate 25 years of shows with a national tour. We know  many Australian fans have already fallen in love with the unique atmosphere of the Big Top and we can’t wait for a new generation of fans to experience our shows in its most iconic venue,’’ said Duncan J. Fischer, President – Touring Shows, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group.

About the show:
With mesmerising and refreshing acrobatic performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Cyr Wheel artists perform the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a Trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed.

Jaw-dropping highlights include a male contortionist skilfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful Aerial Straps specialist defying the laws of gravity at the centre of a cenote (natural sinkhole), a juggler tossing seven pins at breakneck speed, and two football  freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulation.
