When my oldest graduated from high school and went off to college, I quickly realized just how much I had not done with him or my younger babies. I realized that we had missed out on many opportunities to show our kids the world of arts. Of course we did lots of things like vacationing at the beach, traveling to the mountains, going to lots of sporting events, and many kid friendly events like Chuck E Cheese and more. Unfortunately, taking time to let them experience all the different types of art was something we missed. In an effort to expose my children to everything I could, we started going to the art museums, botanical gardens, symphonies, and theaters. One of our favorites, hands down, would have to be the Cirque du Soleil shows. They are absolutely stunning and something that everyone, kids included, should experience! No two shows are alike.
TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.
