When Cirque Du Soleil’s traveling show, Verakai, came to Manila last July I didn’t watch it because I just saw Zaia at The Venetian Hotel Macao last April.
lobby of the theater
I liked the groovy tunnel leading to the main theater.
I bought the tickets online in Manila and simply picked it up at the box office just before the show. I got very good seats.
ZAIA is the most dazzling show ever staged in Asia. This brand new 90-minute mega-production brings together 75 high-calibre artists from all four corners of the globe.
ZAIA is the dream of a young girl who journeys into space on a strange, yet familiar voyage of self-discovery. As she travels, she encounters the beauty of humanity and eventually brings it back with her to share with the inhabitants of earth.
ZAIA presents a young girl’s perception of the stars and planets, space and infinity, all populated by a panoply of fantastic, literally out-of-this-world creatures. The title, ZAIA, comes from a Greek name meaning “life” and is also reminiscent of “Gaia,” the living, self-aware, spirit of earth.
ZAIA is a show that highlights dance, movement and aerial acrobatics, soaring to the farthest reaches of space and human beauty.
The advantage of sitting so near the stage were the pre-show entertainers who got really close and of course the proximity to the stage made you feel like you were almost part of the show.
This clown was right beside me!
Photography was allowed as long as there was no flash. I used my Panasonic GF1 with 20mm lens with a F1.7 aperture.
Choreography I – City Scape
Hand to Hand
I played around with my camera’s settings and got these amazing shots of the light emitted by the objects being juggle around.
Another favorite of mine was the frenetic fire dance.
Choreography III – Fire Dance
The show ended with the Trampoline act.
The whole cast came out for a last bow and were treated to a loud applause from the appreciative audience. 90 minutes went by so fast.
