Luzia – New York - Next to Citi Field

"When the Cirque du Soleil approaches creators it asks them to venture into new scenographic and narrative territories. (…) We started from stereotypes… in order to overturn them. Ubiquitous slowness? We replaced it with speed – that of the Tarahumara, a Mexican people who live in the mountains and can run up to 200 kilometres non-stop, barefoot or wearing light sandals.

For us, then, Mexican people display a great physical and spiritual capacity to go beyond incredible limits." Daniele Finzi Pasca
