BEAVER CREEK — Former cast members of Cirque du Soleil will take the stage at the Vilar Performing Arts Center for Cirque Montage today at 6:30 p.m. Acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and more will bring performances to Beaver Creek that have scored hits at resident shows in Los Angeles and Branson, Missouri.
For nearly a decade, WonderWorld Entertainment has provided Cirque-inspired theatrical productions of all types, featuring former artists of Cirque du Soleil’s “Mystere,” “O,” “KA” and “Wintuk.” This troupe of 11 international, award-winning performers hails from eight different countries, including England, Russia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Turkmenistan, Japan and the United States.
Cirque Montage creates a whimsical world of animated characters who each plays a role in a cinematic tapestry. A driving drumbeat mixed with salsa music flare intertwines in an ever-changing fabric backdrop of colors, shapes and textures created by light.
The acts weave together in a 90-minute collage of traditional, cutting-edge circus arts and comic relief hosted by the wisecracking ringmaster, who demonstrates his passion to become a movie director, and Raven, a red, featherless acro-dancing bird who shadows the ringmaster in her search for fame.
Amidst a versatile dance ensemble — which ranges in movement from high octane and electrifying to serene and lyrical — the ringmaster also presents lizard-leaping pole climbers, a mind-boggling contortionist, duo hand balancers, aerialists and a bombastic juggler.
