In Spanish Luzia means light (“luz”) rain (“lluvia”).

If you’re Cirque du Soleil, it means intricate, poetic, acrobatic art.

In this “waking dream” light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul.

According to organizers Cirque’s new, visually stunning show will feature “a cast of 44 performers from diverse artistic backgrounds, Luzia surprises with acrobatic performances breaking down the barriers, such as integrating rain and water into contemporary circus disciplines.”

Last month the iconic Big White Top was raised in San Francisco at AT&T Park — thanks to 60 workers, and 100 supporting poles. Luzia performances begin November 17. The show then moves down Highway 101, across Silicon Valley to San Jose where it opens February 9, 2017.
