Internationally acclaimed theatrical production Cavalia gallops down under for first time in 2013
Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse, is an innovative multi-media and multi-disciplinary production created by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of famed Cirque du Soleil. Cavalia will open in Brisbane on March 6th, before heading to Sydney in May and Melbourne in August.
Enjoyed by some 3.5 million people across North American and Europe, Cavalia is a lavish production involving 44 magnificent horses and featuring 36 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all over the world. A show unlike any other, Cavalia celebrates the relationship between humans and horses, virtually reinventing the equestrian arts.
In Cavalia, horses cavort with the many artists in front of a constantly changing digital background projected onto a 60 metre-wide screen, drawing spectators into dream-like virtual environments. Unlike traditional horse shows, Cavalia’s audience faces a single 50 metre-wide stage which allows the horses space to gallop at full speed, at times running completely free, unfettered by bridles or halters. Cavalia takes place under a white, 2,440-square-metre big top, rising some 35 metres high that gives the horses an ample playground to perform with their trainers and artists. Cavalia’s gleaming White Big Top is the second-largest touring tent in the world – surpassed only by the one housing Cavalia’s sister production, Odysseo.
Win two tickets to the Sydney Opening Night performance of Cavalia on May 15, under the Big White Top at the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park.
