GAMING — Many of Messi’s younger fans discovered him outside of the televised matches and
away from the real-life field of play. This act is a celebration of those who discovered
him through the world of gaming and a demonstration of what can happen when man
meets machine. In the middle of this act - and featured for the first time ever in a Cirque
du Soleil show - is a customized six-axis industrial robotic arm. She takes center-stage
among her human counterparts, as she is accompanied by our next number 10, an
artist of incredible prowess in this altered world of gaming reality.
