ZUMANITY, THE SENSUAL SIDE OF Cirque du Soleil ONLY AT NEW YORK-NEW YORK HOTEL & CASINO

6 января 2003 г.
Cirque du Soleil

ZUMANITY, The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil, is a provocative cabaret-style production with a seductive twist on reality. Audiences are encouraged to leave all inhibitions at the door and let loose as this the adult-themed, 90-minute production takes them on a sexy thrill ride full of sensational acrobatics and naughty fun. On the cutting edge of contemporary Las Vegas entertainment ZUMANITY can be seen exclusively at New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Part burlesque, part cabaret, ZUMANITY takes a bold new direction by exploring the full spectrum of human sexuality and intimacy. The production renders a tale of emotional freedom, natural beauty, candid humor and acceptance of differences while rejoicing in the delights of eroticism.

ZUMANITY is inspired by infinite individuality and variety—a concept embodied by its artists, who come in all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities and genders in this cast of 45. Emceed by ZUMANITY's "Mistress of Seduction" (famed drag diva Joey Arias), audiences are beckoned to revel in the hilarity by the flirtatious performers whose mischievous personalities ignite excitement as well as laughter.

ZUMANITY's seductive theme is explored through traditional circus arts such as contortion, acrobatics, aerial stunts and hand-balancing. Sensuality also comes alive on stage through a multicultural variety of dance genres including flamenco, African dance, tango, modern dance, waltz and striptease. The beauty of the action on stage is enhanced by Cirque du Soleil's signature visual stimuli including extravagant costumes, gorgeous makeup and exquisite lighting and special effects. The show unfolds to a beguiling score performed by nine musicians and two singers.

The seduction takes place in the 1,261-seat ZUMANITY Theatre, a cozy space custom-designed to meet the unique demands of the show, featuring seating options ranging from a romantic duo sofa for two to a solitary cabaret stool or a traditional theatre seat.

Cirque du Soleil is world-renowned for its distinct brand of theatrical entertainment. Since its founding in 1984, Cirque du Soleil has thrilled over 50 million spectators in more than 130 cities on five continents. In Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil has a privileged partnership with MGM MIRAGE to create and present unique and innovative productions. In addition to ZUMANITY, these productions include Mystère® at Treasure Island, "O®" at Bellagio, KÀ™, at MGM Grand and the latest creation celebrating The Beatles™, LOVE™, at The Mirage.
