SILHOUETTE from Circo Luci premiered in 2011, coinciding with the launch of the Celebrity Silhouette, the fourth Solstice-Class vessel from Celebrity Cruise Lines. SILHOUETTE is the fourth theatrical circus from Circo Luci that performed at sea.

The show has won several industry, media and audience awards throughout its multi run at sea that ended in 2016. In 2012, SILHOUETTE the Show won the Silver Magellan Award for entertainment from Travel Weekly, the first Magellan Award entertainment win for Celebrity Cruise Lines and was also voted one of the top 7 acts at sea by Frommers in that same year.

SILHOUETTE from Circo Luci is a theatrical circus with a celestial theme suitable for all ages.

Follow our “everyman” as he opens a mystical box unleashing a world of fantasy and imagination. Our “everyman” spirals deeper and deeper into the magical world of SILHOUETTE, ultimately transforming into his imaginary persona.

Following his growing fantasies and at the helm his own creation, he steers a collection of bufons, characters, and luminaires on a journey of theatrical conjuring and daring.


Silhouette. The spirit of celebration and whimsical fantasia is displayed in this uplifting conglomeration of African, Chinese, and Western rhythms and instrumentation.

A paradoxical rhythmic balance takes place where the sonorous, enigmatic tribal chants and vocal percussions are at the forefront of a colorful underscoring of vibrant trumpets and quirky, futuristic synths; analogous to the melodic representation of a silhouette.

SILHOUETTE from Circo Luci is available for booking for multi-week engagements worldwide. The show has been designed to perform in a theater but can also be presented in various other types of performance spaces.

SILHOUETTE from Circo Luci is part of the 3 show “Silhouette Package” from POET Theatricals. The other productions that are included with the “Silhouette Package” are Velocity (a music and dance themed show) and Broadway Nights (a musical theater tribute production).

Show packages from POET Theatricals allow venues to maximize production impact inexpensively by allowing presentation of three dramatically different shows utilizing one performing cast and one preproduction expenditure. Each of the POET Theatricals’ show “packages” represents over 2.5 million dollars in capital expenditure investment in the production’s costumes, sets, flying automation, video and music.

Show packages are best used in venues that have repeat customers (casinos with strong local market draw for example), guests that are residing in the venue (vacation destination resort hotels), or travelers that are moving from place to place with the venue (cruise ships).

POET Theatricals has the ability to “mix and match” show packages depending on audience demographics.
