Experience the unbelievable at KÀ, a heroic tale of twins who embark on an adventurous journey to fulfill their destinies. Featuring 80 artists from around the world, KA by Cirque du Soleil is a gravity-defying production featuring acrobatic feats, Capoeira dance and martial arts. Kà is the first Cirque du Soleil production that deviates from the company's usual format—the production presents a more straightforward story, unlike the more abstract visuals presented by other Cirque productions.
The show has been seen by more than one million spectators since its opening in February 2005.
Kà lacks a conventional stage with a permanent floor; instead, two giant moving platforms and five smaller lifts and platforms appear to float through a bottomless space. A narrow boardwalk separates the audience from a deep abyss where the stage floor would normally be. From the stage level of the boardwalk up to the high grid is 98 feet, and the pit drops 51 feet below, amounting to a total of some 15 stories from the highest ceiling grid to the lowest floor level. The opening width and depth of the performance area are each 120 feet.
