Cirque du Soleil - VOLTA in Los Angeles
Volta is a touring circus show by the Cirque du Soleil. It is based on extreme sports; the principal character is a game-show host named Waz.
VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one's true potential, and recognizing one's own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others. WAZ, is a gameshow contestant that has lost touch with himself.
VOLTA is a 2h15 minutes performance, including a 25 minutes intermission. VOLTA contains a very large number of flashing lights which will cause difficulties for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Like most of Cirque du Soleil's shows, VOLTA is meant to entertain the whole family.
