La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil Introduces New Acts And Special Offer
La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil is always evolving with new additions, and the newest acts introduced into the show honor the past while looking forward to the future of entertainment.
Aerial Bamboo may be new to La Nouba, but this rare performance has a deep history that starts in China and involves a pole-shaped apparatus, originally made of bamboo but now made of steel, suspended from the ceiling, with attached loops used for a variety of tricks and stunts.
This breathtaking performance marks the United States premiere of Russian couple Alexander and Ekaterina Abramov that will have you on the edge of your seat as Ekaterina is held only by Alexander – his arms, his feet and even his teeth – as he himself hangs by his feet or arms high above the stage.
I was spellbound by their talent, and I am pretty sure I didn’t breathe as the duo performed and she spun like a top. It was fantastic!
As a huge fan of America’s Best Dance Crew (Yes, I know I am dating myself here), I was really excited to see this B-Boy trio take the Cirque du Soleil stage for the first time!
If you aren’t familiar, B-Boying is a physically demanding form of dance, in which performers execute acrobatic tricks and moves, including flips and spins, to music.
The La Nouba artistic staff scoured the globe for its three inaugural B-Boys: Josh Ortiz (“Incredible Josh”), Jean Carlos Lloret (“Bebo”) and Dmytro Li (“Flying Buddha”). The three hail respectively from the Bronx, N.Y., the Boston area and Ukraine and are performing together for the first time. All three have been dancing since their youth and bring their own unique styles to the act.
I got the chance to see them dance on the La Nouba Stage (I totally geeked out), and it was a treat to see them up-close!
What makes these acts work so well is that La Nouba brought back original choreographer Debra Brown, original composer Benoit Jutras, and original lighting designer Luc Lafortune to seamlessly integrate these new acts into the show.
And if that wasn’t enough, La Nouba has created a new partnership with Morimoto Asia.
From now until July 31, 2016, all La Nouba by Cirque du Soliel guests will have the opportunity to purchase an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage on the Morimoto Asia menu and receive a complimentary four-piece California Roll or Vegetable Roll when they show their La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil ticket stub.
Morimoto Asia is located at The Landings at Disney Springs, approximately a 5 minute walk from the La Nouba Theater, and is a great way to round out your evening at Disney Springs!
If you can’t tell, I REALLY enjoyed the newest additions to La Nouba by Cirqu du Soleil and suggest that you check them out soon!
