Behind The Scenes: Cirque Du Soleil’s Volta

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

I had the pleasure of going behind-the-scenes of Volta yesterday afternoon to see some of the performers rehearse, check out the costumes and more! What caught my attention during the tour was the beautifully designed costumes by legendary fashion designer Zaldy Goco! He has made designs for RuPaul, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and so many more. I learned so much and hope you can join me today as they kick off the show here in Atlanta under the big top at Atlantic Station! Come inside to see some of my photos from my experience. This show is going to be so colorful, have a great day!

The show

Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery that showcases never-before-seen under the Big Top acrobatics in a visually striking world. Driven by a stirring melodic score and inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.
