Cirque du Soleil
Once upon a time, a door opened and two worlds collided. Dreams clashed with reality. The mundane mixed with the marvelous. It was no longer possible to tell where one world began and the other ended.
This new place was called La Nouba - and you found it at Cirque du Soleil!
This is one
show that you've just got to see!!!!
Who can resist the circus? There is a curious invitation that calls out from this huge, overpowering circus tent at Downtown Disney's Westside. The white canvas shell with its soaring peaks, tower above you at over 90ft - seeming to be held to the earth only by an occasional stake. A windowless structure that promises an adventure to all who enter, a momentary escape from reality. It's within all of us, this curiosity about the traveling road-show and the amazements that it brings.
showroom is the first freestanding permanent theatre ever built for Cirque
du Soleil. The dynamic white structure was designed to convey elegance
and sensuality with the addition of fabric and tension reminiscent of
a Big Top.
The set on the Elizabethan-style stage is similar to a well-traveled path. Gaze upward and look at the seven Fabulous Figures that decorate the ceiling. The musicians perform on two platforms housed in the 75-foot towers rising on both sides of the stage.
du Soleil creation is an unforgettable journey through this universe -
at once threatening and exhilarating, frightening and familiar. La Nouba
is the story of all stories, the site of all mysteries, where dreams and
nightmares sleep side by side. La Nouba is memory, individual and universal.
It beckons to us, challenges us to uncover passions we thought we had
lost long ago. Here, anything is possible.
