ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Cirque du Soleil will return to Florida’s St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay region this month with the debut of BAZZAR, a high-energy spectacle of daring acrobatics, dynamic stunts, and thrilling performances that honors the entertainment company’s legacy.
The show, the fourth stop on its North American tour, will be presented at Tropicana Field Stadium under the iconic Big Top from February 22nd to March 24th, 2024.
Cirque du Soleil BAZZAR is an eclectic laboratory of limitless creativity where a joyful troupe of acrobats, dancers, and musicians create an awe-inspiring spectacle. Led by their maestro, they collaborate to create a whimsical one-of-a-kind universe. In an environment where the unexpected is expected, the colorful group imagines builds and creates vibrant scenes in an artistic and acrobatic game.
This “bazaar” welcomes everyone to claim their spot in its marketplace of merriment and creative camaraderie. People might discover that the end of the story is actually just the beginning! The show’s name was inspired by the high-energy excitement, collision of sounds and colors, and meeting place of diverse characters found at a traditional “bazaar.”
BAZZAR perfectly embodies that spirit.
BAZZAR was founded in 2018 and began touring in India and the Middle East. Then, in September 2022, it relaunched, first in Brazil and then throughout South America before heading to the United States.
The show features an international cast of 35 performers and musicians, including teeterboard, acrobatic bike, contortion, duo roller skate, duo trapeze, aerial rope, hair suspension, fire manipulation, slackline, and, for the first time in Cirque du Soleil history, Mallakhamb – a traditional Indian sport in which a gymnast performs aerial yoga postures and wrestling grips in conjunction with a vertical stationary or hanging wooden pole.
