What’s Cavalia? Never heard of it before? Here’s the trailer:
Fuji Xerox is proud to be the presenting sponsor of Cavalia, a unique theatrical production, showcasing beauty and harmony that resonates with Fuji Xerox’s pursuits of innovation, ingenuity and originality.
Cavalia, an innovative multi-media and multi-disciplinary theatrical production created by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of famed Cirque du Soleil, announces its debut tour of Asia with Singapore being the first country to host the premiere season of the show.
Cavalia is a lavish production involving 50 magnificent horses and featuring 43 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all over the world.
It is a show unlike any other, as there is a sequence with some form of storyline. Spectators are brought to different landscapes and at each one, a short scene unveils.
Supported by state-of-the-art multimedia, Cavalia can be described as an epic adventure, a fantastic demonstration of horsemanship that transports the audience into virtual atmospheres.
In Cavalia, horses cavort with the many artists in front of a constantly changing digital background projected onto a 60 metre-wide screen, drawing spectators into dream-like environments. The riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers are all dressed in medieval time costumes and blend nicely into the environment.
Unlike traditional horse shows, Cavalia’s audience faces a single 50 metre-wide stage which allows the horses space to gallop at full speed, at times running completely free, unfettered by bridles or halters. Horses race across the space with riders performing different stunts and comical acts. This was the highlight of the show as the audience keep their eyes peeled, waiting for the next horse to gallop past them.
Cavalia explores humankind’s longstanding relationship with the horse and Cavalia’s horse training is based upon a philosophy of understanding horses, rather than making horses understand the humans around them. The tone of the show, embraced by the entire company, is one of mutual respect, kindness, patience, and trust. Audiences have found Cavalia exhilarating in scope, yet touching in the compassion shown by both horse and human.
Cavalia opens 12 August, 2014, under its signature White Theatre Tent at Bayfront Avenue, beside the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Tickets for Cavalia are now on sale at www.cavalia.sg or by calling 65-31586735. Tickets are priced from S$58 to S$188+ service fees.
