‘A Night in Shanghai’ Welcome Party
Lanson Place embraces a group philosophy that the freedom to immerse oneself in a foreign culture begins with a sense of comfort. To provide a true home-from-home accommodation for the cast and crew of Cirque du Soleil, the property has further embellished its facilities and services to provide a pampering experience, such as expanding the residents lounge seating capacity, adding snack vending machines and a dedicated beverage counter. The property has also organised the ‘A Night in Shanghai’ welcome party on 17 October by transforming its residents lounge with Shanghai’s colonial architecture and offering a range of traditional Chinese delicacies, allowing the troupe and their families to mingle with other residents and immerse themselves in the new environment and culture.
Mr. Jimmy Yu, General Manager of One Sunland Serviced Suites managed by Lanson Place, said, “It is with great honour to host the Cirque du Soleil troupe and their families in the coming months. Rest assured they will be looked after with great care and we look forward to serving them in their Shanghai home. On behalf of the Lanson Place family, we wish the show a great success in Shanghai.”
Performing from 1 October to 3 December 2017 in the Shanghai Expo Park, KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil that combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning, while exploring themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement, and with exhilarating acts challenging the physical demands of human performance, such as aerial hoops, high chair balancing, contortion and high wire. KOOZA debuted in April 2007 in Montreal, Canada, and has since played to an audience of over 7.5 million people in over 56 cities in 18 countries and on four different continents.
