If you’re a fan of both crazy contortionist style acrobatics and Avatar, then you’re totally in luck because a spell-binding Avatar themed Cirque Du Soleil is coming to Manchester between Thursday 20th and Sunday 23rd June.

Strap in as the James Cameron film inspired show features a visual journey for all the senses, spectacular effects and the largest puppet show in the history of Cirque Du Soleil.

If you can remember the film at all you’ll know that it was set on the planet Pandora, a fantastical world filled with all range of mental creatures, fauna and scenes.

This production is no different, re-creating an otherworldly setting on stage filled with all manner of weird flappy humans doing insane things with their bodies.

Described as “breath-taking from start to finish” this production is sure to be a massive visual feast and certainly worth a trip outdoors to see.
