Dralion Comes to Greater Atlanta

Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.

Watch the Dralion preview here

Cirque Du Soleil: Dralion is coming to the greater Atlanta area this summer:

  • August 25-28 at Philips Arena
  • August 31 – September 4 at The Arena at Gwinnett Center
