Two worlds, two colours, two scores, two thought processes...
Two distinct realities, parallel and with no way of meeting one another.

    Two worlds, two colours, two scores, two thought processes… Two distinct realities, parallel and with no way of meeting one another… This is the scene you’ll find before you as you enter the worlds of MUV, the new Cirque du Soleil show in Andorra. Surprising acrobatics, modern costumes, musical rhythms known the world over, and a stunning stage design completely connected to the audience are just a hint of what awaits you in this 2022 edition.

    Equipped with their eternal headphones, the citizens of two neighbouring worlds are isolated from one another. Moving to different beats, they live in their respective bubbles and are completely unaware of the existence of their fellow citizens. Until one day, the Music Master, also known as the MM, decides to reunite the entire planet and get them to dance together to the same beat and the same music.

    The members of the audience are at the centre of the action, with the MM using them as the catalysts for bringing the citizens of the two hemispheres together. Then there is the music – a set of musical hits from recent years, uniting artists and spectators in a celebration of the inspirational power of music.

    • SET DESIGN — Designed to maximize the feeling of being right in the middle of the action, the stage space has been configured to provide spectators with an immersive visual and sound experience. In a modern urban setting, the acrobatic acts will be performed on a central stage in the stalls area, and on two stages located on either side of the tiered seating. On each side of the hall, two neighbouring towns are erected, joined by a circular footbridge. The visual images surround the audience. The show’s electrifying universe is a place where the light shines on, both day and night. The graphic architectural style of the sets is inspired by the atmosphere of great modern cities.

    • MUSIC — The electrifying universe of MUV will be accompanied by a musical framework with pop and rock sounds that invites you to move and dance, inspired by reinvented hits that will amaze the audience. Besides their undeniable popularity, these songs have been chosen because of their lyrics, which will be used to weave the narrative framework of the show.

    • CHARACTERS & COSTUMES — MUV’s rather eccentric state-of-the-art costumes are embellished with a touch of pop rock. Both groups of city dwellers wear monochrome costumes in two or three shades drawn from the same colour palette. The inhabitants of the world of Flames wear costumes in bright orange and warm shades of red and yellow that reflect their playful and passionate image. In the world of Horizon, the people wear turquoise combined with pastel tones that echo their light, airy nature.

    • LIGHTING — The lighting, which constantly showcases the artists, gives a theatrical, operatic feel to the sets, as well as being reminiscent of the pulsating vibe of a dazzling nightclub. In perfect harmony with the musical themes and rhythms, the landscape of light takes on a truly narrative dimension thanks to the colours, the intensity and the energy.
