New Cirque du Soleil show TORUK – The First Flight is coming to the Bay area.
Inspired by James Cameron’s movie AVATAR, the new Cirque du Soleil touring show TORUK – The First Flight is coming to the Bay area. The live immersive multimedia experience will captivate audiences with a fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft, buoyed by a soaring cinematic score. In true Cirque du Soleil style, TORUK will capture the imagination and bring Cameron’s vision in Avatar to the touring stage.
The story 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. The production sets to show the interconnectedness of all living things. 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.
TORUK is scheduled at the Amalie Arena for four days and seven performances on March 17 – 20, 2016. For tickets and show schedule visit www.cirquedusoleil.com/toruk.
