Oe lu Anuraiy syena hapx a rey.
Tsaheyl si hu Eywa a krr, Stawm oel aymokrit fizayu a lm.
Kraa kxap larmu sreyw fey nwotx. Ayngaru tsavurit.


I am the last living member of the Anurai clan. When I connect with Eywa, I hear the voices of our distant ancestors. I hear the time when their lives were threatened. This is that story.

TORUK The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron's AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na'vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na'vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na'vi clans' sense of destiny and interconnectedness and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na'vi.

Narrated by a "Navi Storyteller", the show follows three young adults - Ralu, Entu, and Tsyal - and the first flight of the Toruk.

When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Navi from a terrible fate.
