La Nouba is the meeting of two worlds poles apart: the fantastic world of the circus artists - the Cirques (circus people), sporting bright, fluorescent colours–and that of the Urbains (urbanites), who wear dark, monochromatic outfits. When these two worlds first make contact, the magic and amazing feats of the one set fire to the pale mundanity of the other. Only at Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Petite Madame finds herself beset on all sides by a mad reel of the possible and impossible, dream and reality, the wonderful and the everyday.
This entrancing diabolo (Chinese yo-yo) act features four young performers who hold two sticks linked by a string and slide, juggle and toss a musical wooden spool while performing flips in the air.
The Skippers combine artful moves, exceptional agility and impressive speed with vibrant dance and acrobatics in a steady stream of solo, duo and group jumps.
Desperately wanting to fly away and join the circus, the Green Bird remains trapped in the urban world like a marionette with tangled strings.
A solitary figure, unfriendly and potentially threatening, the Titan marches assertively through the world of La Nouba, like a nightmare waiting to take over a sweet dream.
These four Nuts have but one idea in the heads: to mind everyone’s business but their own, to disobey, to muddle lines, stories, destinies…and to have fun!
In a stunning display of grace and strength, the artists become one with a ribbon of red fabric.
The stage is a visual symphony in this high-energy acrobatic display of phenomenal timing and spatial awareness.
"An eye-popping wonder from start to finish."

Walt Disney World® Resort
It’s like stepping right into a dream. Only the places seem real! A place of magic… a place of discovery… one of adventure… one with spotlights and show biz. The four Walt Disney World Theme Parks make the real world seem far away, and make-believe as real as the smile on your face. They’re the places where innocence is reborn, memories are made, and fun, imagination and excitement surround the young and the young at heart.
The venue is located in Downtown Disney® West Side at Walt Disney World® Resort. The showroom is the first freestanding permanent theatre ever built for Cirque du Soleil®. It’s nine stories high with the stage spanning five stories. The dynamic white structure was designed to convey elegance and sensuality with the addition of fabric and tension reminiscent of a big top.
