Synopsis

In a visual and musical celebration of life, the Cirque de Soleil characters and a child embark upon a mystical journey through the stages of man -- from the dawn of time to present day. During this odyssey, we experience a panoply of visual delights, from the exquisite aquatic ballet of the Synchronized Swimmers to the aerial adventures of the Bungees, bird-like creatures who inhabit the majestic redwood forests, to the incredible Statue Act performers with their incredible unfaltering concentration and breathtaking choreography. Each of these acts and others represents a stage in life's journey, culminating at the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin, Germany, a poignant symbol of hope and new beginnings.
