I'm sad Totem hasn't made it to Seattle during its NA tour. Seattle is a really big market. Sucks that if it does ever come back to the states it'll probably be an arena version.

Cirque Shows Seen: Alegria, Amaluna, Kooza, Kurios (3), Luzia (2), Michael Jackson: Immortal, Quidam, Varekai

You never know. Kooza returned to the states in 2012 and 2015 for four cities each year. Totem could do that. Or a five month break like Ovo took between June and November 2013

La Nouba, Corteo, Delirium, Ovo, Quidam, Totem, Saltimbanco, Immortal, Amaluna.

I think toruk will be the next one into HK, Taiwan etc because it's meant to go to China in 2017 and apparently cirque has a promoter that wants a full Asia tour at round that time too. Not sure if that's still the case though.

Staff members from Port Aventura just told me that this year there won't be a cirque show in Port Aventura :(

Yeah, I've heard there's been some sort of conflict between Cirque and PortAventura and that PortAventura wanted a new show instead of Amaluna, which was originally planned to return. I actually read about this a few weeks ago on this Dutch website but I didn't think it was true.

It does say they plan on brining a show to the park next year though so there might still be hope.

I don't see PortAventura's request that a new show be brought in to be an issue at all

Lol, and there's, like, a perfect 2-month long gap in Varekai's tour schedule while they're IN SPAIN!

Trailer for the new Andorra show Scalada Vision. I'm not sure if the footage is from this year or past years, but as always they are throwing in some acts from past/present shows, such as the addition of slack wire from OVO (I wonder if its the ovo artist, or another one?), Icarian games and russian swing from Varekai, Aerial Pas Deux from dralion, hand balancing, roll bola (Kurios style) and of course trampoline wall in totem costumes! Looks like a great show to get an overview of cirque.

It's the same trailer as last year, using footage from the show two years ago. Don't expect to see any of those acts this year! :P

What are your speculations about the next big top touring show in Europe in Spring 2017...? Totem or Kurios...?

With the tension between Cirque and Port Aventura, any updates if the contract is over/canceled between them? Cuz I could swear that Totem would start it`s European tour there in July of 2017!

Also Ethan is this for sure that Kurios will be the next one touring in Europe? After Houston, Kurios will head to Winnipeg,MB(first time getting a GC show); Portland,OR and ending it`s first NA in Vancouver in the beginning of November 2017. AFAIK and I have a strong feeling too, Kurios will be the next one in Japan begging Feb.2018 til Jun. 2019(unless Amaluna goes there after it`s European tour which looks like will end in December 2017 in Moscow). If that`s true Totem will be touring 2/3 more cities in Asia and then South America starting in Bogota?

@goose Hi, i had a confirmation that"s no Kurios for Port Aventura, you're right... I'm crying.

I said that because it was the only cirque big top option. Colton said that Totem will be in Manila in June 2017 after japan tour...

Absolute mystery, Port Aventura said in all press article that cirque will return in July 2017 with a new big top show...

Any news on further Asia Pacific cities for Varekai? And will it stay in GC after China?

Also apparently they have a promoter wanting an Asian tour of an arena show which was meant to be toruk in 2017 I think... I saw an article which said toruk was planned for China in 2017, so I reckon Varekai will be in China late 2018
