La Nouba is a Cirque du Soleil show residence in a custom-built, freestanding theater at Disney Springs’ West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. It is a contemporary circus performance featuring acrobats, gymnasts, and other skilled performers. The show’s creation was directed by Franco Dragone, who also directed many of Cirque du Soleil’s earlier shows. Its title derives from the French phrase faire la nouba, meaning “to party” or “to live it up”.
La Nouba depicts a meeting of two worlds: the world of the Cirques (circus people, wearing bright, fluorescent colors) and that of the Urbains (urbanites, wearing dark, monochromatic outfits).
