Luzia A Walking Dream of Mexico
Luzia A Walking Dream of Mexico
Luzia is a play on the words Luz and alluvia which mean light and water. The latest show by Cirque Du Soleil will quench your spirit and sooth your soul in this their 38th original production. From script to stage the latest big top production focusing on Mexico was 2 years in the making. We were treated to a private display by several of the shows stars and had the opportunity to talk with them as well to learn more about life on the road and how many of them came to be apart of this fantastic show. Creating bonds that go beyond blood we learned, these performers spend 6 day a week living together, training together and most importantly being their best to insure everyones safety during the performances. I have some interesting facts about the show and an amazing Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal on tickets to both of the Southern California shows.
