Deep in the heart of the steamy tropical rainforest at Las Caletas, near a crumbling pyramid, there is a mystical amphitheater where excitement is waiting for you. As the stars appear in the sky, the spirit world convenes here in a dazzling world-class show that will take your breath away. Conceived of, written and directed by Gilles Ste Croix, co-creator of Cirque du Soleil, Rhythms of the Night - SAVIA is a celebration of spectacular acrobatic skill, pulsating rhythms, vibrant dance, amazing costumes and Ste Croix’s breathtaking interpretation of the Aztec creation story.
SAVIA: The Legend of the 5 Suns is truly a feast for the senses. As you take your place in our incredible outdoor amphitheater under a serene starry sky, you’ll feel like you’re entering another time, another place. And perhaps you are, for each night, this is where the spirit world of the ancients once again comes alive!
An explosion of color, sound and spectacle, SAVIA tells a powerful story about the persistence of the human spirit using colorful imagery, music, dance and movement. Legend has it there were four civilizations of humanity prior to ours. Each new period saw the evolution of the human race... as well as its demise. These previous worlds were destroyed by tornadoes, fires and floods, yet rituals and sacrifices have kept the human spirit alive. From the bones and ashes of the ancients comes a celebration of the fifth sun and the unflagging hope for a better world.
Rhythms of the Night, with its intimate setting, vibrant story and stunning feats of acrobatics, is nothing short of magical.
More than just a show, Rhythms of the Night is an experience! Your evening begins with a Puerto Vallarta sunset cruise across Banderas Bay under a fiery gold and pink sky to the pristine cove of Las Caletas, where you are greeted by hundreds of flickering tiki torches and candles there to light your way.
You will be welcomed to Las Caletas by dancers, drummers and fantastic jungle creatures who guide you onto the beach where a sumptuous dinner is spread out before you. Every detail is perfect. Palm trees will sway overhead and as you dine, you will hear the sounds of the ocean lapping gently against the shore. Then, perhaps with a drink in your hand, you can stretch out in a hammock set in the soft white sand to await the start of the show.
Rhythms of the Night is an excursion unlike any other. Gilles Ste Croix has truly outdone himself with SAVIA, and his cast of magnificent dancers, astonishing fire jugglers and dexterous acrobats make our secluded outdoor amphitheater come alive in the night. As the performers weave a mystical spell, you’ll feel like a part of the spiritual celebrations of the region’s oldest people. It really is an incredible way to experience the history and culture of Mexico. Rhythms of the Night will leave you speechless — and give you memories to last a lifetime.
