Opened in Bushwick, Brooklyn this past fall, MoonRise uses 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, it was extended through the end of May—but it once again received an extension through the end of the year! Starting Saturday, March 12th, people will be able to attend Saturday night sessions through May 28th with new 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. For these upcoming sessions, you will learn the story of Goddess Medusa. It’s a transcendent experience you simply can’t miss!
