Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Drawn To Life’ at Walt Disney World Adds New Finale For Second Anniversary

Cirque du Soleil's Drawn To Life at Walt Disney World

“Drawn to Life” presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney is celebrating two years of delighting audiences at Walt Disney World by introducing an emotional and breathtaking new finale honoring the relationship at the heart of its story, between a father and his daughter.

The Details

It’s been two years since “Drawn to Life” presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney opened in the white tent building at Disney Springs West Side, and it is celebrating with the addition of a new finale that features a swing-to-swing act with artists who soar across the stage between two swings performing new awe-inspiring stunts, acrobatics and choreography.

The act is the culmination of the show’s story of its heroine, Julie, and her father, who was a Disney animator. The artists, representative of Julie and her father, perform in costumes inspired by the art of drawing and animation created by noted costume designer Philippe Guillotel.

“The new finale Swing to Swing act celebrates the completion of the triumphant journey of Julie as she finishes the lines started in an animation left to her by her father to forever link them to one another,” said Justin Sullivan, artistic director for “Drawn to Life.”

“The daring acrobats in the number are kaleidoscopic animated renditions of Julie and her father soaring, flying, and swinging through the air in a touching and thrilling display of amplitude, connection and skill.”
