Cirque du Soleil recently announced that the arena production of Dralion will be performing Duluth in late summer. Dralion will perform eight shows at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth from August 31 – September 4.

Fusing the 3,000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”#) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show”s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one and balance is achieved.

Seven shows will also be performed at Philips Arena in Atlanta from August 25 – 28.
