TORUK – The First Flight is coming to Pittsburgh June 22-26, 2016 – and we’re giving away a family four-pack of tickets to the Avatar-inspired show’s opening night at Consol Energy Center! Learn all about the show, its inspiration, and how you can enter to win our giveaway!
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. From cutting-edge visuals, Puppetry, Kites, and stunning acrobatic performance, TORUK – The First Flight, is sure to delight Cirque goers of all ages.
And it’s not just a show: it’s a live immersive experience bearing the signature of directors & multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. The show is a tribute to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.
Here’s the (not-anywhere-near-basic) plot: When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, put their fears aside and bravely 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 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.
