There is no doubt that if you’re a fan of Avatar and Cirque du Soleil, TORUK—The First Flight will revive the Na’vi world we were introduced to back in 2009 by James Cameron. With a touch of Cirque magic, this multimedia extravaganza sequel is set many years before the movie we all know.

The Show tells the story of two young Na’vis of the Omaticaya Clan (Ralu and Entu) coming of age. While during the initiation ceremony, one of them fails and leaves the clan. They are reunited with a mission to save the Tree of Souls. While in their quest, Tsyal from another Na’vi clan joins to help collect artifacts to summon Toruk.

The most impressive part of the show is most definitely the acrobatics and all the synchronization of small to large puppets—and for sure all of the visuals effects involved during the production.

Although, you might be used to Cirque’s more intimate tent setting like KURIOS. TORUK—The First Flight is built into a stadium setting, so keep in mind that to enjoy the best views of the show, the lower your seat row, the better experience you will have. Also, as part of all the technical aspects of the show, you are able to download the Toruk show app to be part of the experience during the show.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
