JOYÀ Goes On Scheduled Vacation During September

Grupo Vidanta, a leading developer of world-class resorts and tourism infrastructure in Mexico and Latin America, together with Cirque du Soleil announced September 1, 2015 to October 1, 2015, as the planned yearly production break of their collaborative theatrical and culinary experience in Riviera Maya, JOYÀ. Since its premier in November, JOYÀ has enjoyed international acclaim and popular success, ranking among Riviera Maya and Mexico’s most desirable travel experiences. The intimate show, which seats only 600 guests for each performance, has operated at or near capacity since launch.

Cirque du Soleil regularly enacts temporary off-seasons to allow a show’s cast and crew vacation time and to permit technical maintenance and creative refreshments.

Yasmine Khalil, Executive Producer of JOYÀ and President of 45 DEGREES, a Cirque du Soleil company said, “Our shows, including JOYÀ, require the occasional break to allow artists to revive themselves and enjoy a well-earned vacation.”

JOYÀ is a unique entertainment and culinary experience developed by Cirque du Soleil. Since its star-studded premier as Cirque du Soleil’s first resident show in Mexico in autumn of 2014, JOYÀ has received rave review and strong attendance. The intimate performance is housed in the Cirque du Soleil Theater designed by Grupo Vidanta, located in Riviera Maya.

“Vidanta has a long tradition of constantly re-imagining improvements to our guests’ experiences,” said Michele Beuffe, CEO for Grupo Vidanta. “Our partner, Cirque du Soleil has an equal dedication to continually surprising and delighting their audiences. All those involved in JOYÀ have delivered that and more since the performance’s launch, and we look forward to continuing to amaze audiences after the off-season.”

JOYÀ will have its debut following the off-season on Friday, October 2.
