Cirque du Soleil - KA at The MGM Grand KA Theater in Las Vegas.
Seen by more than one million spectators since its opening in February 2005, this show differs in style from previous Cirque productions with a linear form of storytelling, but each broken up into awesome vignettes starring a multitude of characters that wouldn't be out of place in a Shakespearean tragedy. Think of a mix between The Tempest with hints of Mulan and Romeo & Juliet, and you may get a hint of what is to come.
KA is a story about conflict and love of imperial twins who are separated at the cusp of their prime and must each undergo a rite of passage of self-discovery inorder to get back home. Along the way, they both encounter Ka, a magical fire spirit that can either destroy them, or unlock a secret power. With help of mysterious friends in unlikely places, the twins undergo a transformation into young adulthood on their journeys and even manage to fall in love; by the time they are reunited, they are more mature and well-equipped to face the dangers that face them in the future. Perhaps even one of their enemies may even seek forgiveness and strive to use their powers for good....
Unlike other Cirque du Soleil performances, Ka offers four pre-shows. The choreography incorporates several types of acrobatics and martial arts, including fight scenes using the Wushu style of martial arts, Chinese opera, Poi for manipulating staves and batons, Brazilian Capoeira, bungees, aerial straps, swing poles, and a wheel of death.
Opening night: 10 September 2008
