Cirque Du Soleil ECHO | A Refreshing Wish To Save Our Future

Cirque du soleil Echo

We were one of few media outlets to get an advanced screening of Cirque Du Soleil ECHO! It was the perfect experience to see these performers push their artistic and technical boundaries. It was also the first time, the magical big top tent in the Old Port, was once again alive with performance since the pandemic.

There was less of the typical circus trapeze and more digital, poetic and musical wonders in this crystalline set that evoked reflective arctic wilderness crossed with cubic escape room puzzles. The show was charming, exciting and full of audience interaction and lighthearted humor…

Will these charming twins be able to put their heads together and save the day?

Without giving away too much, our favourite scenes involved plain white boxes with echoing twins, white animal characters see-saw flipping in daring feats of flight and a really moving musical performance…

The Story Behind Cirque Du Soleil ECHO

A spectacular performance combining poetry, stagecraft, daring acrobatics, and technology explore the delicate balance between people, animals, and the world we all share. The main female heroine named “Future” and our charming animal & human characters discover that their choices have a butterfly effect and ricochet into the universe, much like an echo only to come back and push us into a new stage of our evolution.

It is only through cooperation and symbiotic balance, that the characters will be able solve the cube puzzle, which is symbolic of saving the earth from climate change and extinction. Will the Cirque du Soleil actors and acrobats be able to save the world? You will have to go and watch the performance for yourself!
