This year Cirque du Soleil presented Dralion in Japan.
Dralion is the fusion of ancient Chinese circus tradition and the avant-garde approach of Cirque du Soleil. The show's name is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West. Dralion derives much of its inspiration from Eastern philosophy with its perpetual quest for harmony between humankind and nature.
Suspended in time between the past and the future, Dralion is a celebration of life and the four elements that maintain the natural order: air, water, fire and earth. Innovation soars to new heights as it defies the laws of nature. Dralion is a dynamic performance that transcends the boundaries of the imagination and leads us into a dreamscape with a new and sparkling perspective.
In Ballet on lights, presented for the first time in the world, seven young women, wearing pointe shoes, perform a ballet on light bulbs.
I couldn't believe this is physically possible!
Oh, by the way. If Cirque du Soleil is coming by your place, definitely you should take the chance and go and see it!
