Inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie Avatar, Cirque du Soleil’s uniquely different touring show Toruk – The First Flight will make its UK debut next June at the Manchester Arena before heading to London and beyond. Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination. From the Floating Mountains and the Omatikaya Hometree, to the Anurai’s animal sanctuary and the lush jungles where the Tawkami live, video projections immerse the audience in the breathtaking world of Pandora. A seemingly perfect match of imagination and ingenuity, this is a must for fans of both the acrobatics of Cirque and the world of Avatar. Tickets are on sale from Friday 16 November.
Thu 20 – Sat 23 Jun, Manchester Arena, Victoria Station, Hunts Bank, Manchester, M3 1AR. Show times and prices vary, www.cirquedusoleil.com
