Cirque Du Soleil’s LUZIA is playing in the DC area through June 17th. This, Mexico inspired journey, takes audiences from an old movie set to the ocean to the semi-desert to an undersea world to a cenote to the jungle to a city alleyway to a dance salon – passing smoothly from an urban setting to the natural world, past to present, tradition to modernity. Expect: animals, hoop diving, and unprecedented amounts of water acrobatics.
And while what you see on the stage is, as expected from Cirque, amazing (and we do offer a glimpse of that too)- here is a peek behind the scenes of what goes into making a production like this happen:
