“When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.”
In an effort to bring audience members involvement to a whole new level, Cirque du Soleil will be launching a first-of-its-kind app for TORUK – The First Flight. The app will enhance the overall show experience and enable audience members to be a part of the action before, during and after the performance!
Before spectators even enter the arena, they can download the TORUK mobile app to immerse themselves into the world of Pandora to learn more about the characters and mythical storyline inspired by James Cameron’s movie “Avatar.”
Throughout the performance, the app will facilitate communication between the spectator and the show’s visual effects behind the scenes, creating a personalized experience delivered directly to the mobile device based on their interaction with the app and location in the theatre.
After the show, spectators can continue to engage with TORUK through interactive images, videos and content that extends their experience.
