TORUK – The First Flight is Cirque du Soleil’s 37th production since 1984.
This 2015 touring production, inspired by James Cameron’s film Avatar, will transport 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.
“I am the last living member of the Anurai clan. When I connect with Eywa, I hear the voices of our distant ancestors; I hear the time when their lives were threatened. This is that story.”
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 Omaticaya 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.
Toruk is the central character of the show, and will be brought to life as a life-sized puppet.
The word ‘Toruk’, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx that rules over the Pandoran sky. Fundamental in Na’vi lore and culture, this perplexing creature is critical to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness with members past and present.
