Cirque Du Soleil’s Toruk: the first flight – James Cameron’s Avatar reimagined

WHEN: October, 2017
WHERE: Brisbane Entertainment Centre

It has been described as an “odyssey in sound and light and acrobatics” and an “immersive experience”.

One thing is for sure, Toruk: the first flight is not your usual fare from the artistic performance company that has turned the concept of circus on its head since forming in Canada in 1984.

Cirque Du Soleil’s latest production is unlike anything that has come before it.

It is the first time a Cirque Du Soleil show has been inspired by a movie – James Cameron’s 2009 epic Avatar – and the first time a narrator has guided the storyline of three N’avi teenagers who set off on a journey to save their planet Pandora. Their quest leads them to Toruk, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandora sky.

Toruk: the first flight is set on Cameron’s fictional planet of Pandora 3000 years before the events that took place in the movie.

Since its debut in Canada in 2015, Toruk: the first flight has entranced and enthralled audiences across Planet Earth.

This incredible production is coming to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in October so get ready to be thrilled by spectacular sets, props, puppets, sound, lighting and performances from some of the world’s most talented and skilled acrobats.

(Cirque Du Soleil has always fashioned its shows towards families – however, in this production there is a note that loud noises and darkness may frighten some children).
