The World is Yours to Create
Cirque du Soleil’s 20th Big Top show, ECHO, will bring bold new visuals and a different aesthetic approach. High-level acrobatics will be woven within a striking and disruptive visual universe.
Cirque du Soleil brings new and surprising twists to its big top magic with a story about the symbiotic unions that our future depends on. Poetry, stagecraft, daring acrobatics and technologies come together in a spectacle exploring the precious balance between humans, animals and the world we share.
Fueled by the power of change, the hope of the youth, and the value of empathy, ECHO follows an inquisitive young woman named FUTURE as she wanders into a fantasy world that explores humans’ sacred bond with animals and nature. When FUTURE and her best friend the DOG encounter a mysterious CUBE, they quickly learn how their actions have the power to shape this world, and if we come together, we can rebuild our planet to create the world we all want to live in. ECHO invites the audience to participate in a universe of color, wonder and infinite possibilities.
Director, Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar said: “Creation should always be at the heart of Cirque du Soleil, and one of our biggest excitement anchors itself in our ability to deliver a new show to our audience. ECHO will push the values of connection, inspiration and the power of intention. We have the ability to create and manifest the world we want to live in, if we all put our collective minds together and encourage a movement that is pushed by the youth of today. What really excites me most about this beautiful project is the ability to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in a Big Top setting and deliver a joyful experience, full of surprises, to millions of people around the world.”
Mike Newquist, President – Touring Shows Division of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group adds: "Atlanta has always been a welcoming city to Cirque with over 170,000 Atlantans coming out to see Kurios-Cabinet of Curiosities. We’re excited to treat Atlanta and their loyal Cirque fanbase with something totally new.”
