Are you looking for a toned down version of a Cirque du Soleil that the kids would enjoy? Then, Toruk is the show for you. Compared to Kurios, where the audience often feared for the lives of the acrobats who were performing dangerous acts, Toruk’s acrobats are never in danger. The show is set in Pandora, the fictional world created by James Cameron for the film Avatar. The costumes are very well done and the use of projectors to change the scene is a cool effect. However, the resolution of the projectors failed to compare to the visual effects of the movie, The kites and puppets add a nice effect and keep with the calm theme of the show. So, if you are looking a version of Avatar that is G-Rated (the film was rated PG-13), this is the show for you.
Toruk is running at the United Center now through August 7th.
