Toruk: Le Cirque Du Soleil New Show
Show inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR
Cirque du Soleil is very happy to unveil the name of its next touring show inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR: TORUK – The First Flight. Presented by Visa Signature, this brand new creation will tour in arenas around the world starting November 2015. The show will premiere in Montreal on December 21.
TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.
TORUK – The First Flight comprises 13 creators under the artistic guidance of Guy Laliberté (Guide) and Jean-François Bouchard (Creative Guide) for Cirque du Soleil, and James Cameron, Jon Landau, Kathy Franklin and Richie Baneham for Lightstorm Entertainment.
