Cirque du Soleil: Amalùna
From Friday, 6 November 2015 to Sunday, 13 December 2015, the Canadian entertainment company Cirque du Soleil is back in Paris at La Bagatelle playing field with one of its latest touring shows, Amalùna.
Inspired by Shakespeare’s play, The Tempest, the show illustrates the story of Miranda, who falls in love with Romeo, a young man who lands on the island of Amalùna after a storm caused by her mother, the Goddess Prospera. However, compared with The Tempest, which in fact emphasizes on only one female character, Amalùna is remarked by a strong presence of female characters that reaches 70%.
This emphasis on femininity can be seen even by the name of the island, which is actually a combination of two words: “Ama” meaning mother and “luna” meaning moon, a symbol of femininity and rebirth.
The show was first performed on 19 April 2012 in Montréal, Canada. It is written and directed by the Artistic Director of The American Repertory Theatre, Diane Paulusthat, and includes various amazing acts such as hoop diving, aerial Straps, peacock dance, clown act, cerceau and waterbowl, uneven bars, teeterboard, manipulation, Icarian games, and magic pageant.
If you are staying at Sister Hotels Champs-Elysées Paris, this is one of the brilliant shows that you highlight on the calendar. So, be ready!
