written and directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon

TAURON Arena Kraków, 6-10 March 2019

Cirque du Soleil’s show TORUK – The First Flight – Inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR, will be presented at TAURON Arena Kraków from March 6-10, 2019 as part of a global tour in arenas around the world.

Inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flighttransports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting.

Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery, and possibility.

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 Omatikaya 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.

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.
