Combining theater, dance, clowning, and humor, the Cirque du Soleil has created an exciting and compelling event involving the company’s fourteen acts. Suitable for all ages, ALLAVITA! is keyed on the themes addressed by Expo Milano 2015, featuring bread, farming, sustainability, and the passage of time, as well as human history and how it has been impacted by, and how it has impacted, the environment.
It all begins with the actors handing out seeds to the audience. Then the action moves back to the stage, where Leonardo
is given a magic Spelt
seed by his grandmother. Enter the imaginary guide, who takes him on a magical journey, where they encounter hour-glasses, farmers, foreign lands, and women who might be flowers, or vice versa. All of this is played out on a stage that is ablaze with color, resonating with music and acrobats a-leaping, all designed to conjure the world’s myriad cultures.
