Cirque du Soleil's latest touring production to pitch its tent outside the United Center is inspired by James Cameron's 2009 sci-fi CGI fest Avatar. Set thousands of years before the events of the movie, TORUK depicts the first of the Na'vi people to successfully ride a great leonopteryx through the Pandoran skies.

I was expecting more from this show. It was a lot of special effects and dancing but not a lot of daring acrobatics. The show was cool but it did nothing for me. Hard to follow the plot. The outfits, makeup and set were cool but I wanted more of a "cirque" show. This just seemed like a random special effects show.
