In case you missed it at the end of Robin Leach's most recent article and interview with Fabrice Lemire... After Mexico, its remaining cities in the United States, and a brief vacation, the cast and crew of TORUK embark on Asia. They begin in Taiwan in June, then it’s Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Will the different plugs needed for washing machines in Australia or microwaves in Taiwan be easy to handle when Cirque's TORUK arrives after its engagement here last week? Those minute details are two of hundreds that artistic director Fabrice Lemire handles as he moves his “Toruk” cast and crew of 99 around the world.
Robin Leach went behind the scenes at Cirque du Soleil's TORUK-The First Flight whilst the show was in Las Vegas, speaking with Kleber Berto, previously of KA, and with Raymond O’Neill, who plays the narrator of the Toruk’s Na’vi-language story.
When the Cirque comes to your town, it’s a pretty big deal. “Toruk — The First Flight” took in almost as much money as Paul McCartney on the road last year. But when Cirque comes to Las Vegas, its own backyard? Ehh. Depends on how busy those World of Concrete conventioneers are. And how much locals care about the “Avatar” connection.
It was absolutely gorgeous and unbelievable visually. Cirque du Soleil is known for bringing wonder and delight to millions of spectators across the globe, and it dazzled audiences once again Wednesday night with the Las Vegas premiere of its newest touring show, “Toruk: The First Flight.”
Cirque du Soleil is now working to bring you the fifth and final show in the SCALADA series: STELAR. In this latest edition, Cirque du Soleil invites you to discover a parallel world between the sky and the earth. It will lead you into the unknown, to touch the clouds and see beyond...
42 Seven Productions, W Times Square and IndieFork welcome Ruby Lewis, Ryan Vona and cast members of Paramour for the 10th installment of the hit Sunday night acoustic experience "Broadway at W," featuring Broadway's hottest shows and their talented casts in a raw, up-close, and acoustic environment in the exquisite Living Room of W Hotel.
Running off to the circus might be considered a unique choice to some. However, for University of Calgary Schulich School of Engineering student Jason Chen-Leung, the decision was an easy one to make when it came to his audition with Cirque du Soleil. With guidance and support by Faculty Jason now performs in KA.
On this very special episode of CirqueCast, four Cirque du Soleil fans join us as we go over Cirque du Soleil media news, Paramour's closing at the Lyric Theatre, and the new Big Top show VOLTA. And to top it all off, RJ Owens, Baby François in Mystere, makes a very special and unexpected appearance to answer some of our guest hosts' questions!
Nico Baixas of Spain, a hand-puppet artist who performs nightly in Cirque du Soleil’s KURIOS at Hard Rock Stadium, brought his “handiwork” to Gulfstream Elementary School on Thursday. Baixas, who is the KURIOS accordion man, entertained deaf and hard-of-hearing students at the school.
A most spectacular Cirque du Soleil show is about to be unleashed on Las Vegas. It’s a multimedia extravaganza where technology is the real star, so much so that you can download an app to your smartphone and at certain times in the production add to its visual effects.
Ottawa has convened an advisory group with representatives from media companies that have a significant presence in China as it seeks to develop a creative export strategy it will unveil some time in the coming year.
“Toruk — The First Flight” is the rare Cirque touring show to land on the Strip, which already hosts six resident titles. (The last one was “Michael Jackson — The Immortal,” five years ago.) But “Toruk” is a prequel to “Avatar,” so it would seem unfair to deprive Las Vegas of a tie-in to the highest-grossing movie of all time.
Christmas has come and gone. What did you find under the tree this year? I found three special somethings from Cirque du Soleil in my stockings: The TORUK, LUZIA DVD, and FLOWERS IN THE DESERT DVDs.
On Friday, March 3, JUNO Award-winning vocal super-group and Canadian heartthrobs 'The Tenors' will partner with One Drop to present the fifth anniversary of One Night for One Drop, an extraordinary, one-night-only experience supporting safe water access programs worldwide.
