An equipment officer died Tuesday night in an accident during the set-up for a Cirque du Soleil show at AT&T Park in San Francisco, police said. The show's organizer said that the technician was struck by a lift following which he was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Brisbane Olympic gymnast Lisa Skinner who fell during a performance on Sunday will be fitted with a brace on Monday to keep her body from moving, her mother says. The 35-year-old was performing the aerial hoop solo act during Cirque du Soleil's Kooza performance at Skygate when she fell, plummeting to the floor just before 2pm.
Back on October 11, 2014, Saban Brands and Cirque du Soleil unveiled their first TV co-production, Luna Petunia, a pre-school series inspired by the Quebec-based circus troupe. And we've been waiting to see what Luna Petunia was all about ever since then. Netflix acquired the series in 2015 and it's now set to air!
GoldenSun posted a tantalizing new teaser for Cirque du Soleil and Grupo Vidanta's upcoming theme park - right now simply called THE PARK. Check it out!
BroadwayWorld Sacramento spoke with Cirque du Soleil spokesperson Laura Silverman about the innovative technology and puppetry of Cirque's latest arena show, TORUK - The First Flight, a story-driven prequel to James Cameron's Avatar.
We are back with another discussion episode! In this episode, we discuss the Toruk DVD and Paramour Soundtrack, Corteo's return in arena format, the NFL + Cirque du Soleil project announcement, and Richard goes over a few details from the Celebrate Project, Cirque du Soleil's first theme park opening in Mexico in 2018.
When the folks at Cirque Du Soleil invited us to check out some of the technology behind its latest show, Luzia, we just couldn’t say no. We try to get to every Cirque show that comes to the Bay Area, so this was like getting a glimpse into Santa’s workshop.
If you’ve ever seen Cirque's fantastic Las Vegas show O, you no doubt marveled at the complexity of performances taking place in and out of water. Now imagine incorporating that complexity in one of the famous Montreal circus company’s traveling acts, and you’re ready to take in Luzia, its newest, and perhaps most ambitious road show ever.
Maya Kesselman went to Brandeis School of San Francisco for eight years and is now a cast member in Luzia, the newest show from the famous avant-garde Cirque du Soleil. Find out how she got started in the circus world!
Karina Silva Poirier has spent years dazzling audiences with acrobatic feats, swinging and spinning high above the ground supported by long, thick ribbons of fabric. Poirier, 39, put her aerial performances for Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba on hiatus last year during her pregnancy and after the birth of her 7-month-old son Kyle.
Dominic Cruz didn’t have to run away to join the circus. He was encouraged to pursue a life under the big top. Cruz, 23, a former Vallejo and Benicia resident, has a featured role in Cirque du Soleil’s “Luzia,” which stops in San Francisco beginning Thursday and continuing through Jan. 8.
As a recap to my last review of this wonderful show, I’m lucky enough to be a ‘Passionate’ – one of those people who have followed Cirque for many years. Through those years I’ve made many cirque-adjacent friends.

As Cirque seeks to catapult out of a financially difficult period, the 32-year-old Montreal company finds itself at a strategic crossroads as it transitions beyond its signature big-top spectacles and Las Vegas extravaganzas and into new growth opportunities — namely, partnering more with established entertainment properties like “Avatar” and expanding into China.
