Cirque du Soleil marks its return to Australia with its critically acclaimed production LUZIA, which premiered in Melbourne, stunned Adelaide audiences and is set to delight and amaze Perth from July 25 at Claremont Showgrounds. 

The performance commemorates 25 years since Cirque du Soleil first brought its captivating spectacle to Australia. 

LUZIA invites audiences to immerse themselves in an imaginary Mexico—a lush realm where dreams intertwine with reality. Get ready to be transported to this enchanting and visually stunning world during the show’s delightfully imaginative journey.

In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, the show will take audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry.

Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

With mesmerising 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, expanding exponentially 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 centre of a cenote (natural sinkhole), a juggler tossing seven pins at breakneck speed, and two football freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulation.
