La Nouba, the Cirque du Soleil show at Downtown Disney, is getting a new act featuring world-renowned juggler Anthony Gatto. Gatto will be added permanently to the 90-minute spectacle beginning Feb. 5.
Anthony Gatto comes to La Nouba from the tour of KOOZA by Cirque du Soleil and holds 11 world records in juggling. In the nine-minute act Gatto will juggle balls, hoops and clubs in unprecedented numbers at amazing speed.
Gatto joins the ranks of professional athletes, dancers, vocalists, musicians and comedic performers in the cast of 67 artists in La Nouba.
“Anthony is a true showman and we are pleased to have him join the dedicated and talented cast of La Nouba. The juggling act is fast-paced and will add to the energy on stage,” said Company Manager Neil Boyd. “This act is an amazing new addition for our fans that come to see the show year after year.”
The new act is entitled “cinq-a-sept” which means “five-to-seven,” generally known as “happy hour.” This fits well with the meaning of La Nouba – “to party” or “live it up.”
This new act replaces the chair balancing act in the show.
Five years after setting the first Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously walking on stilts, Cirque du Soleil will reclaim the title in honor of its 25th anniversary. Cirque du Soleil will be holding stilt walking events in Orlando, Las Vegas, Nev., New York, N.Y., Montréal (Canada), Fortaleza (Brazil), Lisbon (Portugal), Macau (China), Nagoya (Japan), and Tokyo (Japan) on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.
The company is organizing public events, including in the streets of Québec, where it all started back in the days of the Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (the Baie-Saint-Paul Stiltwalkers), a street theatre group founded by La Nouba Director of Creation, Gilles Ste-Croix. In the spring of 1980, Ste-Croix walked 56 miles on tall stilts from Baie-Saint-Paul to Québec City to raise money for a group of street performers that would soon influence the founding of Cirque du Soleil.
To honor this momentous occasion and the roots of Cirque du Soleil, the cast and crew of La Nouba, along with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, invite the people of Orlando and visitors to witness the stilt walk. The event takes place from 4 to 4:30 p.m. outside the La Nouba theatre at Downtown Disney. The mayor will be on hand to proclaim June 16 ‘Cirque du Soleil Day’ in Orlando.
