Cirque du Soleil taps into the sounds and soul of Mexico

Cirque du Soleil lovers will wake up to an imaginary Mexico reminiscent of a dream in LUZIA, which features a contortionist twisting his body in unimaginable positions, a juggler tossing seven pins in the air and an aerialist in straps in the rain.

The national tour will visit Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth before arriving in Brisbane on September 25 next year at Royal Queensland Golf Club, off Curtin Ave East, and finishing in Sydney.

Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA show will come to Australia in 2024.

Written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, LUZIA smoothly passes from an old movie set to an ocean, a smoky dance hall and an arid desert, taking the audience to the tradition and modern places, faces and sounds of Mexico.

Unlike last season’s performance, which was done on ice, next year’s acrobatic and artistic scenes will incorporate rain.

Cyr wheel artists will roll and spin under the rail while an aerialist suspended from a trapeze will fly and twirl through water and performers hoop diving onto gigantic treadmills.

Gold Coast woman Helena Merten, who began training in gymnastics since she was five years old, will be a running woman, performing in acts involving hoop diving and a Chinese pole.

Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group touring shows president Duncan Fisher said he was thrilled to 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,” he said.
