SFL had the Chance to Sit Down with the Cirque du Soleil Performers
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.
Rosina Gil, a ballerina from Uruguay, is pleasantly surprised to be a part of the Cirque family. She still can’t believe that she gets to work with this awesome group of performers. Gil says she is constantly working on the acrobatic elements of her performance because it doesn’t come as second nature to her as her ballet specialty. She is happy to share her gift with the other performers in ballet class though. “If you get frustrated, you must keep going,” she says. Her piece with Nao Yoshida is touching to anyone who has been a child or had a mother.
“It’s hard to be away from loved ones, she says but there is no feeling like being on stage.”
Cirque du Soleil returns to Atlanta with VOLTA, a captivating voyage of discovery! Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA explores the themes of celebrating differences and unique qualities in a world where technology often isolates people from one another rather than freeing them. Written and directed by Bastien Alexandre, with Jean Guibert as the director of creation, VOLTA weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score, composed by Anthony Gonzalez from the international electronic group M83.
VOLTA will perform under the Big Top at Atlantic Station in Atlanta October 10, 2019 —December 8, 2019. Discover our Hennessy Black VIP Experience package which includes a cocktail reception with open bar and hors d’oeuvres inspired by the show, access to the best seats for greater comfort and complimentary parking!
