The acrobatic show is a blend of traditional Chinese circus and Western contemporary circus. Cirque du Soleil embellishes an East meets West theme seeking a peaceful coexistence between humans and nature.
The name Dralion draws its inspiration from two animals. The Dragon represents the East while the lion symbolizes the West.
Cirque du Soleil – Dralion performs various shows this weekend at Philips Arena. After Sunday the performance moves up Interstate 85 to the Gwinnett Arena in Duluth, Georgia.
Schedule and tickets for all Cirque du Soleil – Dralion events are available here.
