Blind Touch Tour – Odysseo by Cavalia

October 30, 2013 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Cavalia Odysseo – Blind Touch Tour

Cavalia Odysseo is a larger-than-life production created by Normand Latourelle, co-founder of Cirque du Soleil. Featuring 64 horses and 49 artists, Odysseo marries the equestrian arts, stage arts, and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A veritable revolution in live performance, Odysseo comprises a list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring big top, the biggest stage, the most beautiful visual effects, and the greatest number of horses at liberty.

With the collaboration of Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind, Odysseo is proud to organize a special interactive tour for children who are visually impaired. The children will discover Cavalia’s world through a variety of senses including touch, sound, and taste. Members of the cast will guide them through this one-of-a-kind experience as they are allowed to touch the horse’s soft coats, feel their warmth, brush and groom them and much more!
