Cirque du Soleil Film This Weekend at St James Cavalier

cirque_webFrom the big top to the big screen, visionary filmmaker James Cameron and director Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Narnia) invite you and your family on an all new 3D adventure: Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away.

The experience of watching a live Cirque du Soleil show is an oddly entrancing one; it’s as if you enter a dream world, filled with curiously rubber-limbed people who twist themselves into positions both beautiful and strange. “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,” the new 3D movie, lets you enter that world without the high ticket price. You miss some of the thrill of seeing it live — the how did they do that? factor is lower — but the beauty remains.

“Worlds Away,” which combines elements from seven Cirque du Soleil shows, has a vague narrative thread — and, like the stage shows, virtually no dialogue. A waiflike young woman in white (Erica Kathleen Linz) attends a shabby circus one night and instantly falls in love with the aerialist (Igor Zaripov). Distracted by her, he slips from his trapeze and falls — not to the sandy floor of the circus tent, but through it, into a series of vivid new worlds. She follows him, and after 90 minutes of random but often mesmerizing dance/acrobat numbers, they are reunited in a romantic aerial pas de deux.

Till 9th June at 9pm. Book tickets now!
