“Allavita” will be performed during Expo Milano 2015, with over 50 artists on stage.
A new show based on a new creative concept: from May, 6th to August 23rd , at the Expo Open Air Theatre, the Cirque du Soleil will be presenting its new performance inspired by the Universal Exposition’s theme itself, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Allavita! – that’s the title of the exclusive show, which refers to the awareness of the winds that nourish us and the roots that bring our international family together – will charm the audience while narrating a fascinating tale, interwoven with music and dance, and underlining the deep union between food and life.
«We are extremely excited to bring Cirque du Soleil’s creativity to this significant event for Italy and the world» said Yasmine Khalil, President, Events and Special Projects for The Cirque du Soleil Group. «Allavita! will be a never-before-seen production that will reflect the Expo Milano 2015 theme in an innovative, entertaining and thought-provoking style».
Cirque du Soleil will collaborate with experts in Italy to create Allavita!, which will include Italian performers who will attend invited audition sessions in Milan. Specialty technical and logistical experts from Italy will be a crucial part of the show’s production team and local providers and suppliers will also assist in diverse areas. «The high-quality expertise available in Italy will be a great benefit to the Cirque du Soleil team» added Khalil.
