Cirque Du Soleil - Dralion
John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville VA
After 15 years performing around the world, Dralion will make its finale curtain call in January 2015. From October 22-26, 2014, Charlottesville will have its final opportunity to experience this unique and colorful Cirque du Soleil signature production that has performed in more than 150 cities. Dralion will be presented at the John Paul Jones Arena for six performances only.
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
