About LUZIA by Cirque Du Soliel: LUZIA is a waking dream of Mexico. LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (luz in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (lluvia) soothes the soul. With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.
