Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora.
When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.
Cirque du Soleil always puts on an incredible show with amazing costume, incredibly immersive scenery and a beautiful story line. I’m excited for this show. Check out the amazing things that go into creating this world. There are a total of 40 projectors used to create ambiance and project part of the beautiful scenery. Video effects synced with the performers timing evoke the emotion of the scene. The projection is crucial for Pandora to take shape along with the massive set.
On top of all of the video special effects the costuming is incredible. Each actor has to looks as those they are part of the Na’vi so special care was taken. The costumes resemble the Na’vi people from the AVATAR film, though this show is set 3000 years before the movie. There are 115 costumes with each actor using an average of 3.
