Director and writer James Cameron’s 2009 film Avatar is the highest-grossing movie of all time, about a half-billion dollars in front of Titanic, another of Cameron’s films. In spite of its chart-topping box-office success, the film has its fair share of critics. The folks at Cirque du Soleil aren’t among them. The innovative and frighteningly flexible troupe of tumblers, gymnasts, dancers, and the like have based their latest show, Toruk, on Cameron’s Avatar and its fictional planet of Pandora. With a visually stunning display of multimedia, the Canada-based troupe whose name translates to “Circus of the Sun” will bring the distant moon and its inhabitants to life on Sunday, November 20, at Talking Stick Resort Arena, 201 East Jefferson Street. The family-friendly show runs at 1 and 5 p.m. Tickets are $35 and up. Visit cirquedusoleil.com or call 602-379-7800 for details.
