Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary
approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion(pronounced "Dra-lee-on") draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature.
The show's name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing
the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus
embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is
green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature
are one, and balance is achieved.
