The world-famous Cirque du Soleil has officially confirmed its participation in the International Specialized Exhibition EXPO 2017 “Future Energy” in Astana.
“We have prepared a big show especially for EXPO 2017. It is a combination of classical circus and incredible acrobatic feats. The performance will be an emotional journey for the spectators, which they will remember for a long time,” said show director Fernand Rainville.
The special performance of Cirque du Soleil will be presented from June 16 through September 10, 2017 at EXPO 2017. Overall, there will be 71 performances. The performance was inspired by the main theme of the International Specialized Exhibition — “Future Energy” — and the rich cultural heritage of Kazakhstan.
Through the main character of the show, Arman, an archaeologist and hopeful dreamer, the spectators will discover the seven elements: Joy, Success, Wisdom, Well-being, Speed, Height and Growth, and Divine Protection.
The music, especially composed for this performance, will reflect the journey across a fantastic world where the past meets the present, together producing a bright future.
The stage will be decorated with elements of the city of the future and the architecture of the past. Ritual dances and modern choreography will be combined with one another. Fascinating video projections, laser installations and light graphics will bring landscapes to life. The performance will be highly informative for the spectators, who by the end will return home with a message of how human energy and power can be used to create a sustainable future.
