The new Cirque du Soleil touring show, inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie Avatar, TORUK – The First Flight, will be presented at the BB&T Center in Sunrise on Mar. 3-6 and at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami on Mar. 10-13, as part of a global tour in arenas around the world which started in November 2015. The show is presented by Visa Signature.
TORUK – The First Flight is a live immersive multimedia spectacle that brings to the stage the breathtaking world of James Cameron’s Avatar like you have never seen it before.
Through a riveting fusion of cuttingedge 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.
TORUK – The First Flight will be presented at the BB&T Center on Mar. 3-6 and at the American Airlines Arena on Mar. 10-13. Tickets for those performances can be purchased at www.cirquedusoleil.com/toruk.
