SILHOUETTE the Show
Silhouette the Show is a European-style theatrical circus with a celestial theme performed to an original soundtrack written for the production. The show follows an “everyman” that unleashes a world of fantasy from his version of “pandora’s box”.
Velocity is the best of the world of dance and aerial performances fused with the latest in pop music. Choreography from some of the world’s top choreographers and aerial performances designed by former Cirque du Soleil artists come together to create an unforgettable spectacle performance.
The hits of musical theater are relived onstage by the cast and presented in a vocal concert setting. The talented cast takes the audience on a journey through the best music from Broadway.
The original Silhouette soundtrack is the spirit of celebration and fantasy told through an uplifting fusion of African, Asian, and Western sounds, rhythms and instrumentation.
The soundtrack is a rhythmic balance where tribal chants and vocal percussions are at the forefront, supported by a colorful underscore of vibrant trumpets and quirky, modern synths samples, revealing a sonic representation of a silhouette.
