“A Dream of Mexico”
When: March 30 – May 21
Time: Tue – Sat 4pm/8pm; Sun 1pm/5pm
Where: King County’s Marymoor Park
Freely inspired by Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of a country whose wealth stems from an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions – a land that inspires awe with its breath-taking landscapes and architectural wonders, buoyed by the indomitable spirit of its people. The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality. Instead of representing Mexico in a realistic fashion, the creative team of LUZIA decided to create an evocation of this monumental country. They imagined a dream woven from memories, experiences and encounters, laden with inspirations deeply rooted in Mexican identity. Not only it explores the combination of hoop diving – a traditional circus discipline from China – and two giant treadmills to generate speed and expand the discipline’s acrobatic vocabulary, it uses water as a source of inspiration. The idea of placing a water basin under the stage floor and creating a rain curtain paid huge dividends on the acrobatic front.
