Opened in Bushwick, Brooklyn last fall, MoonRise is back for a limited-time, using Rigolo’s signature high-level “nouveau cirque” acts — which combine dance, acrobatics, theatre, music and visual arts — to take you on a magical astrological journey showcasing the stories of the 13 moon goddesses.
Though the experience was only supposed to run until the end of December 2021, it was extended through the end of May 2022—but it’s major success and rave review of 4.5/5 stars has bumped back a closing date yet again! People will be able to attend Saturday night sessions starting in October with exciting VIP ticket options.
Upon entering the enchanting space, you’ll be able to use an astrological chart to find your moon goddess and see if you share any traits! From the independence and wisdom of Freya (of the first moon) to the fun-loving and beautiful Maenad (of the tenth moon)…
Next, you’ll make your way into an immersive sound bath room for a calming sensory experience, before you enter the main performance space. Sit back as you enjoy a craft cocktail that matches your goddess’s lunar herb (elderflower for Freya or cocoa leaf for Maenad, for example), and hold your breath as expert aerialists twirl above your head.
You’ll also be able to witness a mesmerizing balance act that was performed at Cirque du Soleil for over 10 years. The entire breathtaking show is produced by nouveau cirque veterans Rigolo.
The space is decorated with beautiful blues, flowing natural fabrics and glowing candlelight, so you’ll be completely immersed in the mystical stories and performances.
And as before, the show will change with every moon phase, highlighting a different moon goddess until all 13 are complete. It’s a transcendent experience you simply can’t miss!
