The battlefields are alive in KÀ as the stage shifts, and our warriors are forced to fight on the land and in the sky. This spectacle combines martial arts, pyrotechnics and a unique setting that will leave you in awe.
The story describes “the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of KA, the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate.”
Set on a dynamic theatrical landscape, the story of KA is a classic tale of two twins, a brother, and a sister, who are sent on a treacherous journey, and this time we are invited to come along. Black and white face painting and the use of martial arts techniques from all around the world give KA a style similar to that of Japanese Kabuki theater.
One of the most mystifying elements in the show is the ever-evolving stage that transforms into a floating barge, a beach, a snowy mountain, and a violent sea in the midst of a storm. The surrounding stage elements make you feel like you are a part of the set with the action taking place all around you. At different times during the show, the performers enter the stage from the audience.
KA is rich with plot, characters, a sense of pride, and power. This memorable mixture of circus-like performers and enchanting main characters will satisfy seasoned theatergoers and newcomers alike.
KA by Cirque du Soleil is the troupe’s first production to feature a cinematic storyline while maintaining flawless imagery, music, martial arts, and incredible acrobatics.
