JOYÀ, the next creation by the amazing 30-year-old acrobatic Cirque du Soleil troupe will open this fall in Rivera Maya near the Grand Mayan Resort. Mexico Secretary of Tourism Claudia Ruiz Massieu said, “We are extremely excited for what the partnership between Cirque du Soleil and Grupo Vidanta offers to all visitors of Cancun and Riviera Maya. JOYÀ will be a world-class attraction for Mexico.”
Jet-setters heading to Cancun make note of November 8, 2014 which will usher in preview performances of the show which will offer food and beverages that combine culinary and performing arts in one sensory raising setting. JOYÀ(Spanish for jewel or pearl) tells the story of an alchemist and his granddaughter embarking on a disorienting yet transformative quest to uncover the secrets of life where they discover a hidden gem in the mangrove, passing along the poetry of love and life to future generations. The show premiers on November 21, 2014 following the previews at a 600-seat custom-built theatre housed in a lush jungle setting.
“This new creative collision of cuisine and immersive performances is tailor made for Cancun and Riviera Maya,” said Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO of Cirque du Soleil. “We reveled in the creative challenge of introducing something completely different in JOYÀ. Through the integration of premium food and beverage service into a Cirque du Soleil theatrical experience that draws on Mexico’s rich culture and heritage, JOYÀ will deliver an immersive, multisensory offering beyond anything that currently exists for residents and visitors of Mexico, or elsewhere in the world.”
