Written and directed by Tony Award-winning director, Diane Paulus, Cirque du Soleils 33rd production Amaluna is a celebration of love and a tribute to the work and voice of women. Tickets are now available by visiting www.cirquedusoleil.com/amaluna or by calling 1-877-9 CIRQUE. The New York Times urges; The display of female strength is a lovely thing. The New York Post boasts; gorgeous visuals and dazzling circus acts, and San Francisco Chronicle described Amaluna as; sumptuously designed and invigoratingly female-powered. AMALUNA Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughters coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honors femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next. In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prosperas daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony. Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to mother in many languages, and luna, which means moon; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds. A TRIBUTE TO THE WORK AND VOICE OF WOMEN For the first time in Cirque du Soleils history, Amaluna features a cast that comprises 70% women, with a 100% female band. Amaluna is a tribute to the work and voice of women, explains Director of Creation Fernand Rainville. The show is a reflection on balance from a womens perspective, he adds. Director Diane Paulus, winner of a 2013 Tony Award (Pippin) and recently named as one of Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People of 2014, says: I didnt want to build a womens agenda show. I wanted to create a show with women at the center of it, something that had a hidden story that featured women as the heroines. Paulus drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show; including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozarts The Magic Flute and Shakespeares The Tempest. CIRQUE DU SOLEIL Some 30 years ago, Cirque du Soleil was but a dream. It was the dream of a small community of travelling performers who would do anything to share their love of the stage, of circus and of the world. The family has grown since then and now includes thousands of dreamerscreators, artists, technicians and workers who toil in the shadows. The dream has become a symbol of Québec pride, an international entertainment company that has brought 35 large-scale shows to life20 of which are still in operation. The company, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in June 2014, has brought wonder and delight to close to 150 million spectators in more than 300 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has close to 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from close to 50 different countries.

On the heels of their 40 date European tour, Helmet are pleased to announce a tour of the United States in February 2015. The band will be playing their critically lauded 1994 Betty album from start to finish, followed by a second set spanning the entirety of Helmet's catalog. Billed as the "thinking man's metal band," Helmet provided an alternative to the grunge bands of the time with their clean cut aesthetic and raw, unrelenting, propulsive sound. Betty came on the trails of the band's first mainstream success, 1992's Meantime. The cut "Milquetoast" became a music video staple on MTV and the album was critically praised for its genre-defying exploration into jazz, blues and improvisation. As music writer Darrell Bassett wrote upon the album's release, "The thump and grind of Betty fully reflects the seemingly meaningless forces that shape our hi-tech existences, the inner pressure that waxes and wanes as life's pace explodes exponentially and its occasional moments of grace. Betty is a surprising album, one which grows as it unfolds its subtleties." A prophetic statement if ever there was one.
