At the Cirque du Soleil La Nouba, the mundane meets the marvelous, and you can take this unforgettable journey into a world that is both threatening and exhilarating at once with the amazing acts and characters of this fantastical experience! The theater takes you into the world of the mysterious and dreamy Cirques and their encounters with their exact opposite, the Urbains, who are monochromatic.
Take in the experience with the many fun and exciting characters like the hilarious clowns Balthazar and Sergei. Join the four Nuts, Les Cons, as they mind everyone’s business but their own and take you along for the ride! Imagine the classic love story of passion and intensity of the Dancers, a Pierrot clown and a lost ballerina. Their love, like their dance, is a never-ending story filled with desire, fear, and a longing for more. Experience the power of the Titan, a solitary figure, unfriendly and potentially threatening. Take on the dust and cobwebs alongside the Cleaning Lady, and enjoy the acrobatics on the wall at the End of the World with the Acrobatic Pierrot. See the beautiful Green Bird, who has escaped her cage and desperately wants to fly but is too awkward. Learn about the lonely little Walker as he goes back and forth, never stopping except at specific moments for reasons known to him alone.
In this inspiring and fantastical show, you can enjoy the many acts of excitement and imagination:
The Juggler - Join the juggler as balls, hoops, and clubs fly in unprecedented numbers and at speeds that the eye and brain cannot easily comprehend. They don’t just pass from hand to hand – they arc and fly into waiting props with seemingly impossible accuracy.
High Wire – Admire the high wire that takes place on a 90-foot long, half-inch wide steel wire. With remarkable balance and precision, the high wire walker ascends to a height of 34 feet above the stage as his partner descends from the theater’s eighth level to the fifth on a diagonal wire. The performers’ breathtaking maneuvers include head balancing and death-defying somersaults.
Diabolos – The diabolo, or Chinese yo-yo, is a children’s game first introduced into the realm of the arts in Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam. Holding two sticks linked by a string, the four young performers slide, juggle, and toss a musical wooden spool while performing flips in the air. Demonstrating increasingly difficult maneuvers, the artists attempt to outdo each other in dexterity and ingenuity.
Cycles – This act gets rolling with a BMX wizard whose difficult maneuvers never fail to mesmerize the public. His technical twists, gymnastic turns, and spins on one wheel are highlighted in incredible tricks accompanied by lots of footwork. The second half of the act features yet another artist whose feats are equally astonishing. His hard-to-believe stunts include riding over obstacles without ever putting his feet down, jumping off high platforms, hopping up and down steps and into the audience on one wheel, and more!
Aerial Cradle – The aerial cradle looks like a door and is a perfect example of equal opportunity strength and agility. This amazing athletic display features elements of traditional circus aerial cradle with a unique and special difference – the male and female artists take turns supporting one another 34 feet above the stage.
Aerial Ballet in Silk – In a stunning display of grace and strength, the artists become one with the ribbon of red fabric that cradles them. This breathtaking aerial dance requires immense agility and flexibility, and allows the performers a wide latitude of acrobatic and artistic expression.
Flying Trapeze – Four pendulum-like swings carry a team of perfectly synchronized aerialists 53 feet above the stage. This innovative bi-level rigging enables the trapezists to create a visually arresting exhibition of rhythm and athleticism. Timing is key when all four trapezes are swinging in tandem and the aerialists switch places.
Power Track / Trampoline – This act takes ordinary trampoline and power track performance to a new level! The stage is set on fire in this high-energy acrobatic display of phenomenal timing and spatial awareness.
Skipping Ropes – Inspired by the playfulness of our youth, this act begins with the Urbains performing rigid rhythms in monochromatic tones, giving way to vibrant dancing and acrobatics in a steady stream of solo, duo, and group jumps and formations. The featured Skippers combine artful moves, exceptional agility, and impressive speed that far exceed child’s play.
