"Toruk--The First Flight" courses its Asian Premiere in Manila!

Toruk--- The First Flight will take its first Asian course in Manila 

Who would not know a movie as great as its creator like Avatar? I, myself was able to watch this gigantic film for the nth time, hahaha I couldn't recall at all, actually. Me and my family had been watching it over and over again. And hoping that James Cameron, the creator, director and the main man behind this film could come up with a sequel. 

Good thing, Cirque Du Soleil has launched an Avatar-themed show entitled "Toruk--- The First Flight!" They have toured around the globe and I really feel so privilege to have the chance to experience its very first course in Asia which is here in Manila!

So happy to have met Entu, a Na'vi, native tribe from Pandora 

Daniel Crispin was very much in character as an Entu. I am ao looking forward to watch the whole spectacular and interactive show!

Bask in Cirque du Soleil's spectacular show, "Toruk--The First Flight." It is an immersive one-of-a-kind show inspired by James Cameron's record-breaking movie "Avatar," which premieres this June 23 at The Mall of Asia Arena until July 2, 2017. We must take advantage of this because this particular themed show will be its first in Asia. 

The Show

Since Fall 2015, TORUK – The First Flight has traveled through Canada, the United States and Mexico to bring James Cameron’s world of Pandora to life every week. Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery, and possibility.

Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.

This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.
