Rhythms of the Night - SAVIA

Creation of a live multimedia performance

2017 - Puerto Vallarta

A vibrant combination of nature, performance and set design deep in the heart of the tropical rainforest.

Moment Factory was commissioned by Vallarta Adventure to work in close collaboration with Gilles Ste-Croix, co-founder of Cirque du Soleil and creator of the show Rhythms of the Night – SAVIA, to enhance this unique, live experience with immersive multimedia.

SAVIA is part of a Vallarta Adventures experience package that embarks visitors on a journey beginning in Puerto Vallarta’s seaport. Leaving at sunset, visitors board a catamaran to the private beach, Las Caletas, where they are welcomed on a path lit by 6000 candles. They arrive at the second part of the experience, a candlelit dinner followed by the show SAVIA as the grand finale.

SAVIA tells the story of Five Suns, a myth inspired by Mayan/Aztec cosmology and contemporary indigenous traditions. At the heart of the show is breathtaking scenography set in a natural environment. Created by scenographer Eugene Caballero, the reproduction of a pyramid acts as a central character and comes to life with projection mapping created by Moment Factory. The show also features acrobatic, aerial, contortion and fire performances, with live music, dancing and singing.

Through video content and projection mapping, we created optical illusions that transform the set design, while the lighting in the surrounding forest allowed us to create an immersive atmosphere.
