Why See Cirque Du Soleil - Volta?
Cirque Du Soleil's Latest Show
Cirque return in 2017 with their newest spectacular Volta! Drawing inspiration from the world of sports, the troupe's usual array of supremely talented trapezists, gymnasts and dancers will be joined by BMX riders and skaters. As with every Cirque show before it, Volta is all about blazing your own trail and fulfilling your potential. The story follows gameshow host Paz who has lost himself in the trappings of fame. With the help of the mysterious 'free spirits' he must cast aside his fortune, and rediscover his true self.
Providing the score for the show is indie musician Anthony Gonzalez (aka M83), whose lush electronic soundscapes have previously soundtracked the Tom Cruise sci-fi movie Oblivion. Volta is written and directed by Bastien Alexandre and choreogrpahed by Julie Perron.
