Cirque du Soleil returns to the City of Los Angeles in 2018 with its highly acclaimed touring show SEP7IMO DIA – NO DESCANSARÉ blends the wonder of Cirque du Soleil with the explosive pop-rock energy of Soda Stereo – Argentina’s musical icons – to immerse spectators in the band’s symbolism and poetry
SEP7IMO DIA will premiere at the Forum in Los Angeles from May 3 to 6, 2018.
This is the show´s first time in the USA, having entertained more than 1 million people in 5 Latin American countries in 2017.
The SEP7IMO DIA set contains acrobatic and décor elements inspired by Soda Stereo’s music videos and the lyrics of the songs, which die-hard fans will recognize.
In 2013, Pop Art Music founder Roberto Costa, Pop Art Music CEO Diego Saenz and Soda Stereo Manager Dany Kon approached Cirque du Soleil to create a show based on the band’s music. The project comes to life exactly 10 years after the band’s final tour.
Set on a strikingly unconventional stage, SEP7IMO DIA is an ode to the trio’s fiercely innovative artistic approach and musical legacy. The show picks up on the wave of euphoria that Soda Stereo unleashed in Latin America and beyond, and celebrates the iconic band’s deep connection with its fans.
A cast of 36 performers take the audience through a series of visual, acrobatic and artistic tableaux, achieving an unforgettable experience that honors the fierce and innovative artistic approach of the trio and their musical legacy.
A young man named L’Assoiffé, who thirsts for meaning and social justice and dreams of a better world, feels trapped. When he plugs into the music of Soda Stereo, he has whisked away to an inner world and is set free. The music of Soda permeates this inner world, spawning an entire civilization that resonates with the group’s music, poetry, culture, and iconography.
The inhabitants of this realm become the physical embodiments of the music. After experiencing a series of events and emotions inspired by the lyrics of the songs, L’Assoiffé ultimately realizes that the music we carry in our hearts is as faithful as a true friendship – deep and eternal.
