The Outrigger Waikiki Beachcomber is the venue for the new exhibit, scheduled for December 2024 and expected to run for several years.

“The show will combine the world-renowned acrobatics and innovation for which Cirque du Soleil is known, with the natural beauty and unique culture of the islands,” a statement read.

Hawaii doctoral student Aaron J. Sala will play the role of creative cultural producer. Renovations will be carried out over the next few months to adapt the hotel’s exhibition hall, which was in use until now Polynesian magic.

The new, fairly intimate theater will seat around 800 spectators. In comparison, the tent currently set up in the Old Port of Montreal could hold up to 2,500 people. Theaters in Las Vegas have a capacity of about 2,000 seats. In the Riviera Maya, where it is served Joya Since 2014, the capacity is 600 spectators.

“We are thrilled to partner with an important brand like Outrigger to bring a new world-class immersive experience to life in Honolulu,” said Eric Greeley, President of Resident Exhibitions and affiliate of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. We can’t wait to establish ourselves in Hawaii and draw inspiration from the rich culture of the islands for the show. »
