ZAIA: Crossroads in Macau
Cirque du Soleil Images
Filmed /// 2010 | Macau Run Time (50 min)

Inspired by the vastness and diversity of the cosmos, writer and director Gilles Maheu soaked up a few dozen cultures to create a show imbued with the different colours and flavours of the world: ZAIA. A great challenge awaits the artists and craftspoeple of this odyssey, who will have to relearn how to move and communicate. They will explore new territories and make the "Crossroads in Macau" their meeting point. Discover the spectacular and poetic world of ZAIA.

This documentary takes viewers on the journey from initial spark to premiere of ZAIA at The Venetian Macao. What makes this show different from previous efforts by Cirque du Soleil is the market in which it is presented - China. Follow the trials and tribulations of a cast and crew trying to give Cirque du Soleil a foothold in this Chinese gambling Mecca while at the same time finding inspiration in the show's theme: space.
