We had the opportunity to attend Cirque du Soleil as members of the media. Cirque du Soleil is a show for all ages, and VOLTA was definitely enjoyed! Striking acrobatics, stunning costumes, aerial artists and incredible BMX stunts – the story of Waz and what makes him extraordinary is not one to be missed. I’m thinking we’re going to need to take the kids back and see it again, after making sure they can’t decided to use our house as a BMX ramp. 🙂

Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery that showcases never-before-seen acrobatics under the Big Top, in a visually striking world. Driven by a stirring melodic score and inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of judgement from others.
The stunning costumes of VOLTA have been designed by Zaldy Goco, famous for his work with Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and for the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
