In spring of 2020, Cirque du Soleil will return to Denver with its newest show, Volta.
Inspired by the culture of street sports, Volta tells the tale of Free Spirits, a crew of BMX biking acrobats. The company promises an "energetic, urban and contemporary" performance.
Denver local and BMX professional AJ Anaya, who will perform in Volta, says he's thrilled to be coming back to his home town. Anaya has competed as a professional BMX athlete since 2006 and has taken part in numerous shows and sports events, including America’s Got Talent, the Pan American Games, and halftime shows for the NFL, the NBA and the NHL.
