Mexico comes to London: fab Luzia for kids

What a glorious tradition from Cirque du Soleil to brighten our grey, cold, depressing winters at Royal Albert Hall. In 2022 and 2020 Mexico came to London via Luzia: dazzling, spectacular, passionate and surreally dreamy. Is Luzia kid friendly? I’ve been asked already few times by friends. Luzia for kids is wow and super cool, the 6 years old stated and I can’t recommend any warmer.

We have been spoilt rotten to be invited by Cirque du Soleil for the last 3 consecutive years and our eldest felt in love with Ovo in 2018, Totem in 2019 and Luzia in 2020. I’ve also seen their outstanding performances worldwide, with  Vegas and Melbourne my favourites historically.

So we are well familiar with the sheer talent and out of this world acrobatics and poesy. But Luzia must be the most joyous dazzling celebration of humanity I’ve seen on stage. It’s all about Mexican heritage, landscapes, treasures, enchanted flora and fauna but I felt it goes way beyond that. It’s about love, passion, grief, lost worlds and hope.

The most physically daring flexibility act I have ever seen, the 6 years old labelled him a magic human octopus.

It’s about flying birds on stage cheekily and playfully jumping through hoops.

It’s about freestyle footballers showing off their tricks and the stars of Mexican cinema competing for attention.

It’s about flying daringly and dreaming, between sky, water, jungles – thrilling athleticism and poesy.

It’s about heart stopping jumps; daringly juggling whilst running down the stairs ; it’s about cenotes, diving into enchanted landscapes, cactus, fish, amphibeans, jaguars all together. The waterfalls on stage at Royal Albert Hall are hypnotic, just like the huge running horse and Luzia butterfly running and flying. Luzia for kids is pure magic and delight. 

2020 has been Luzia’s first time in Europe and what a joy to see Cirque du Soleil dazzling luminous metaphors. There’s so much light (“luz” in Spanish) and there’s spellbinding rain (“lluvia”) soothing the soul.

Is Luzia kid friendly? Not only confirming it in here but appealing to grown ups to bring their inner children and get ready to dive with Adolpho Gonzales your pilot who can’t stop your freefall; Pedro, Hugo and Cirque du Soleil exquisite team into the surreal magic.

The 6 years old and I fell in love also with the music, it has been actually on repeat. He has been obsessed with Totem on Spotify for 3 years and now Luzia is coming back with a vengeance. The music tracks and visual storytelling bring timeless mythology and magic collective unconcious figures, all with mind-bending stunts and breath-taking sequences.

It’s also the most environmentally friendly to see Mexico; but this visual dream made us itch to book flights and head back (Mexico with kids is fab, read about in here).

The show is 2 hours 15 minutes, including a 25-minute intermission and runs until February 27th at Royal Albert Hall. I felt the 2 hours went in a blink and left me seriously longing for more. DVD on repeat since, some seriously beautiful obsessions and metaphors.  Grab your tickets in here and do let us know if Luzia steals your hearts as badly as it has done to ours!
