KÀ, is the unprecedented, gravity-defying production by Cirque du Soleil that takes adventure to an all new level. Experience a heroic journey of love and conflict, set within ever-changing theatrical landscapes that conjure an entire empire on stage.
KA describes the story as "the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of KÀ, the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate."
The show's title is inspired by the ancient Egyptian belief in the “ka,” an invisible spiritual duplicate of the body that accompanies every human being throughout this life and into the next.
As the plot of KÀ unfolds, danger lies in wait at every turn for the separated Twins, the acrobatic heroes of this adventurous expedition. Archers and Spearmen hunt them relentlessly. As the villains give chase, the artists show off their climbing prowess with an incredible ascent to safety. An encounter with mysterious giant sea creatures proves to be more mischievous than menacing.
As a distraction from danger, the Twin Brother learns the art of shadow puppets in a tender, yet poignant moment. The Twin Sister, protected by her Nursemaid, manages an escape in a miraculous man-powered flying machine, releasing her into a majestic forest populated with bright, luminous creatures on Bungees, where her rescue culminates in an aerial ballet with the ultimate protector of her life and her heart. Meanwhile, in the Archer’s Den, captives perform on the Wheel of Death with breathtaking displays of gravity-defying feats.
In the culmination of the Twins’ extraordinary journeys, a battle takes place on an enormous vertical stage offering a unique aerial perspective. Video projections react to the artists’ touch while the adversaries spin through the air in a captivating display of perpendicular acrobatics.
You can see it. You can experience it. But, you won’t believe it! Featuring 86 artists from around the world, KÀ™ by Cirque du Soleil® is a gravity-defying battle between good and evil, featuring a powerfully emotive soundtrack that enhances the innovative blend of acrobatic feats, Capoeira dance, puppetry, projections and martial arts.

Melissa the critic says!
This one was fun. It's supposedly based from a true story, so that's kind of neat. I got like a Mortal Kombat kind of vibe from it, actually. Throughout the show you have characters surrounding the theater which was fun to look at, as if there wasn't enough going on, on stage. My favorite part was the fireworks at the end. It was overall very entertaining.
