Cirque du Soliel’s Amaluna invites Atlanta audiences to a mysterious island of goddess guided by the moon, provoking imagination and emotion. Under the big top at Atlantic Station, Atlantans packed the house to see the story that honors femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance written and directed by Tony-award winner Diane Paulus.
During the wake of a storm, a group of men land on the island sending sparks flying between the queen’s daughter and a young suitor, but as fate would have it their love is tested. The beauty of their relationship is played out as they discover the power of their union.
The 52-member Amaluna cast is comprised of 70% women along with an entire female band. In true Cirque du Soleil fashion, the cast performed exciting stunts complete with acrobatic tricks highlighting a mid air ballet dance and hand balancing on the edge of a water bowl.
Amaluna runs through November 30th in Atlanta. For more information about Cirque du Soleil, visit www.cirquedusoleil.com
