KÀ BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO PRESENT GRAVITY-DEFYING STUNT FOR OPENING NIGHT OF COMIC-CON

WHO: The resident production of KÀ by Cirque du Soleil at MGM Grand in Las Vegas will make their first ever appearance at Comic-Con with a free public performance on the opening night of Comic-Con.  Participating performers and representatives from the show’s Artistic and Technical teams are available for interviews before and after the performance.               

WHAT:A display of dazzling 3-D projections created especially for Comic-Con will tell the adventurous tale of KÀ by turning the façade of PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres, into an interactive performance space combining projections and live acrobatics. The audience will get a bird’s-eye view of a fierce battle pitting the Imperial Twins of KÀ and their allies against an enemy warrior tribe as the scene plays out on the surface of a 90-foot high vertical stage. The event is free and open to all Comic-Con attendees.

KÀ is a gravity-defying production featuring an innovative blend of high-flying feats, puppetry, projections and martial arts. KÀ unfolds on a custom-built, colossal, 360-degree rotating stage which forms the backdrop for this cinematic journey of aerial adventure and perpendicular acrobatics.
