  • “Exploring The World of Pandora”

    “Exploring The World of Pandora”

    Earlier in the month Cirque du Soleil invited us to explore the distant planet of Pandora (in similar vain to Google’s Sensory Chrome Experiment: “Movi Kanti Revo”) to unearth artifacts to piece together the identities of five ancient clans. The more artifacts you found, the more information you unlocked, and the closer you got to winning a one-of-a-kind experience with three of your closest friends. In order to unlock the sweepstakes you had to collect at least 12 of these artifacts (but they were easy to spot), but we didn't stop exploring once we did so. There were 25 total artifacts to find in the jungles of Pandora, five for each clan, and in doing so we learned quite a bit about those clans, and what possibly to expect from "TORUK - The First Flight" itself!
