LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry.

Smoothly transitioning from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage the multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.

Written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, in association with Brigitte Poupart, LUZIA is a place where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul.

This imaginative show will be in British Columbia for the first time, promising a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances.

With mesmerizing and refreshing acrobatic performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Cyr Wheel artists perform the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers.

Hoop diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, exponentially expanding the speed and amount of daring leaps executed.

Jaw-dropping highlights include a male contortionist skillfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful aerial straps specialist defying the laws of gravity at the center of a cenote (natural sinkhole), a juggler tossing seven pins at breakneck speed, and two soccer freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulation.
