Behind The Scenes Look At Toruk The First Flight #TheTicket

Cirque du Soleil is back in Dubai and this time with Toruk – the first flight.

It is set 3,000 years before James Cameron’s Avatar on the same moon, Pandora.

Even the stage is flown in with them and they use projectors to recreate various scenes like the jungles, deserts, waterfalls, volcanoes, etc.

So last week I actually got a chance to exclusively go backstage and see some  of the puppets, meet some cast members, and even got a chance to walk on the stage! (which we’re not really supposed to do)
