Cirque du Soleil presents “Toruk: The First Flight”

Set on the wondrous world of Pandora, Toruk: First Flight tells the story of the N’avi’s first threat and how they saved the World Tree.

The magic and intensity of the Cirque du Soleil takes us back to James Cameron’s epic Avatar with their latest production, “Toruk: The First Flight”.

Starting on October 19 and running until October 29, “Toruk: The First Flight” tells the story of two young N’avi who, determined to save the sacred World Tree from a natural catastrophe, set off to find Toruk – a great dragon-like creature held in reverence by the Omaticaya tribes.

Cameron’s incredible vision put forth in the first Avatar movie is brought to life in a way that only the Cirque du Soleil could – a complex combination of death defying acrobatics and dance set to an original and otherworldly score.

The world of Pandora is breathtakingly realised in intricate detail – the landscape a rich and alien wonderland of mind-boggling detail. This is the set that the performers turn into the aerial playground, and the world the audience gets to experience at a visceral level not even Cameron’s film could replicate.

Cirque du Soleil’s “Toruk: The First Flight” will show at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney from October 19 until October 29.
