Cirque du Soleil

The Brief

Toruk - The First Flight is Cirque du Soleil's touring production, inspired by the film Avatar. Thus the set needed to be as magical and enchanting in real life as it is in the film. That’s where Ingenious Structures came in. To create a completely bespoke and impeccably designed 12-metre tall by 12-metre wide inflatable tree trunk structure that would become centre stage on the Avatar inspired set.

The Challenge

Given the unique design and size of the structure we needed to ensure that it was architecturally viable and strong enough to allow up to 10 acrobats to bounce, flip and dance off it during shows.

The Result

With the perfect blend of creativity and innovation, we produce an inflatable structure that surpassed expectation. Beautifully designed, structurally sound and durable.
