Here’s What ‘BAZZAR’, Cirque du Soleil’s Latest Acrobatic Spectacle, Is About

The world leader in live entertainment, Cirque du Soleil, will travel to India for the first time this November for the world premiere of its newest show, ‘BAZZAR’.

It’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience and naturally, we’re absolutely excited! Here’s why.

‘BAZZAR’ is an awe-inspiring spectacle the starts where it ends and ends where it begins. It’s an acrobatic game set in a performance lab filled with different structures with which the artists build and bring to life the most vibrant of scenes.

In its own way, the show pays homage to the early days of Cirque du Soleil.

“‘Where did Cirque start from?’ was my main inspiration.”

“I thought about this group of artists and I thought about Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix and how they all got together in the original Big Top and just would create. I wanted to watch a troupe of artists create something and the audience would follow them through the creative process.”

-Susan Gaudreau, the show’s director.

Like all other Cirque du Soleil shows, ‘BAZZAR’ tells a story. It’s the story of a troupe of acrobats, dancers and musicians who come together to create a show.

Led by their Maestro, they invent a whimsical universe where the unexpected is expected, and you’re invited to be a part of it.

Though smaller than other typical Big Top touring shows, ‘BAZZAR’ is still very much a Cirque du Soleil production at heart, and will feature everything the live-entertainment giant is known for – magical lighting, live music, striking costumes, audacious acrobatics and stunning performances.

It will also be the very first Cirque du Soleil show to feature the Indian sport of mallakhamb.

“I think the Indians will love what we do,” says Gaudreau, who came up with the show’s original storyline.

She’s quite right. Our first glimpse of ‘BAZZAR’ at the at the grand finale of Lakmé Fashion Week 2018 left us dazzled.

‘BAZZAR’, continuing Cirque du Soleil’s quest for new markets, will also travel to a number of smaller countries in the Middle East and then to the Greek islands, if all goes according to plan.

But for now, its first stop is Mumbai.
