Cirque du Soleil Dralion
The Ground breaking Cirque Du Soleil Show Visits Manchester As Part Of It’s First Ever UK Arena Tour
Cirque du Soleil’s signature show Dralion will visit Phones 4u Arena Manchester next summer.
Tickets for the Wednesday 11 – Sunday 15 June Manchester residency go on sale from 9.00am Friday 01 November.
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
Dralion Artistic Director Mark Shaub said: [quote]“We are very excited to be bringing Dralion to Great Britain next spring. Many of our cast and crew have connections to Great Britain and are looking forward to presenting the show to audiences there. Dralion is a wonderful blend of amazing acrobatics, stunning choreography, live music with hilarious clowns. It’s a feast of colour and emotions that will surely appeal to British audiences”. [/quote]
