Inspired by the vastness and diversity of the cosmos, Writer and Director Gilles Maheu soaked up multiple cultures to create a show imbued with the different colours and flavours of the world: Zaia™, the new Cirque du Soleil resident show in Macau, China. “Crossroads in Macau” is a making-of documentary that demonstrates the concepts from which Zaia was created and how they are layered onto the real life challenges of its artists and creators. Macau becomes a permanent junction for diverse cultures, new ways of moving, new languages and distinct creative visions. Through captivating HD footage, “Crossroads in Macau” highlights the artists of Zaia their struggles in both the show and their new lives in Montreal and Macau. The documentary shows that while the trappings of our cultures are vast, what lies underneath is basically the same. These are the themes that make Zaia a meeting place on many levels and a crossroads for humanity.
