Cirque du Soleil returns to the ice with a new creation, AXEL, coming to the DCU Center Dec. 5-8. This unique experience blends ice-skating, acrobatics and live music, set in fantastical universes.

The show follows the journey of Axel, a young man and his dynamic group of friends, whose passion for live music and graphic arts comes to life in an exhilarating adventure. 

“The success of our first creation on ice has reinforced our ambition to further explore the extensive creative possibilities of a frozen playground,” says Daniel Fortin, Vice President Creation. “With Cirque du Soleil AXEL, we will offer a truly electrifying experience to all audiences, pushing the boundaries of creativity with the unique approach that has forged the reputation of Cirque du Soleil.”

Cirque du Soleil AXEL is calling all Worcester County creatives to design a custom enamel pin for the show. Up to 4,000 copies will be produced and distributed to various partners. More information on the contest is here.
