Let yourself be transported to a new dimension with Scaladia: Vision!


In this new story you will follow the adventures of a brother and sister who have an indestructible bond between them: a closeness that reflects the family values of the Andorran culture.

The protagonists will be faced with finding themselves separated in a totally unknown universe. They will arrive in an imaginary, surreal and futuristic world, where they will travel between reality and fiction. Throughout their adventure they will come across many elements of their home town, but in a futuristic form.

The little sister will let herself be ruled by her instincts until she becomes completely lost in this futuristic dimension. Her brother, meanwhile, will follow her footsteps in the hope of finding her, while immersed in a totally different experience. Separately, each of them must make this journey on their own, overcoming the challenges of their own reality. Their instincts and the strong bond of brother and sister will be the key to their meeting again.


Each scene will be carried along by the acrobatic, aerial and choreographic performances, which will evoke unmistakable aspects of Andorra.

• Scenography — This year, the stage makes way for video content to create a truly immersive atmosphere. The stage is built around the concept of a modular box that will whirl spectators between the disparate worlds of a brother and his sister. A series of movable, deconstructed façades provide a unique and mesmerising medium for the event’s storyline to unfold.

• Music — The musical arrangements have been crafted to conjure up two very distinct worlds: that of the brother and that of the sister. Not only are these distinctions the backbone of the story, but they will immerse spectators amidst a sensory experience, rousing a wide range of emotions. The sounds of a beat-boxer intermingle with the melodies of a live singer to deliver the event’s musical essence, which evinces the Cirque du Soleil’s musical expertise.

• Costume Design — The two distinctive worlds the event revolves around are further emphasised through the performer’s costumes: futuristic and linear designs mark the brother’s world, while colourful, imaginative and surreal ensembles represent the sister’s universe. All costumes draw from the reality of the brother and the sister, respectively.

• Lighting and Video — Lighting is used to further the event’s narrative, while enhancing its acrobatic performances. Video projections envelop the brother and the sister in their respective worlds. The brother’s universe is evoked using straight lines, a modern atmosphere, bright lights and a clearly defined tech appearance. The young sister’s world, on the other hand, is more surreal, organic, colourful and innocent. The video takes on a second layer of meaning by interacting with the performers. At certain moments the video content is influenced by the action taking place on-stage.

• Acrobatics — The aerial acrobatics and choreographies in Scalada: VISION were specially created with video projections in mind. The staging is inspired by a modular box allowing the main characters to travel between the two parallel worlds the story unfolds in. A brand new set of magical acrobatics will take the audience on a journey among these two dimensions, evoking the same emotions experienced by the event’s protagonists. This year’s event boasts more group performances than in previous years, making it all the more difficult and spectacular!


Vision01• The City of Lights — The brother experiences, for the very first time, a futuristic world, made of lights and videos, where he meets beings from another time who change. These characters creates a fascinating world of movement. Lost amidst the chaos of that world, where dancers and acrobats perform in unison, he becomes fearful of it, yet unable to resist its pull. He will have to find his way through it to complete his quest: finding his sister.

Vision02• Craving love — While seeking his younger sister, the brother finds himself in front of a fallen bridge. On the one side there stands a magnificent woman. The only thing connecting them will be the long rope -his only way across the bridge-, upon which they perform a poetic duo. In a tangible display of sensitivity, the duo bear each other’s weight so they can take flight. It’s an intimate moment where audiences will hold their breath, enveloped by the event’s visual poetry. (Duo Relation Act, created by Rigolo)

Vision03• The Giant Door Finale — In the last act, the sister reaches a giant door, which stands between her and her brother, who is on the other side. She must find a way to get to him. Using her imagination, which will have helped her throughout her journey, she conjures up a series of characters who perform incredible acrobatic feats on a power track. The more impressive the acrobatics, the wider the door opens.
