From the Canadian entertainment company that brought us stages that disappear into swimming pools, choreographed roller blading to the Beatles and Criss Angel live, comes something a little different: a dinner show on the Mexican coast.
Today, Cirque du Soleil revealed a first glimpse of Joyà, an “intimate” theatrical experience under construction in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Set to a Latin drumbeat, the 90-second YouTube video doesn’t give much away, but it does show sketches and renderings of what appears to be a theater in the round with seats and dinner tables, as well as an under-the-sea scene, live musicians, the usual Cirque acrobatics and a vague butterfly theme.
“Life has a secret to share,” the Joyà video proclaims. Cirque’s secret won’t be fully revealed until November, when Joyà is scheduled to debut.
