Cirque Du Soleil Brings Its 41st Original Production VOLTA to Gatineau

August 13 @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Daily until August 27, 2017

VOLTA tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. WAZ, a popular game show host, has lost touch with his inner self in the pursuit of fame, pulling others in the trap of instant glory. But as doubt sets in, WAZ is enlightened by childhood memories as he encounters “free spirits” who open doors to his inner soul he has long kept shut.

Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves the adrenaline rush of acrobatics into a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score. For this new production, Cirque du Soleil collaborated with international artist M83 as the composer and musical director, adding his epic space-age future pop sound to the VOLTA stage for the first time.

The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show. VOLTA is Cirque du Soleil’s 41st original production since 1984, and its 18th show presented under the Big Top.
