Cirque du Soleil Co-founder to Showcase Pyramid-Shaped Entertainment Venue in DFW

Vistors can experience multimedia productions and nightlife events at PY1, which is making its U.S. debut at Globe Life Park in Arlington next month. Take a look at what attendees might see inside.

On New Year’s Eve, an 81-foot-tall pyramid plans to open its doors for the first time in the U.S. as “a unique venue filled with technology” and “fueled by storytelling,” according to a Lune Rouge Entertainment video.

PY1 is the creation of Lune Rouge and Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberté, who also founded Lune Rouge itself. From Dec. 31 through March 1, 2020, Arlington’s Globe Life Park will be home to a “dream-like experience of light, sound and spectacular visual effects” in the form of PY1, according to a statement. Two shows, along with a nightlife experience, will be available at the traveling structure. 

PY1’s multimedia show Through the Echoes is said to be “a technological and emotional odyssey through space and time featuring lasers, 360° projections, kinetic stage elements, special effects and grandiose lightscapes.” Up to one thousand guests can fit inside the “marvel of technology and a one-of-a-kind playground,” which is host to “a new kind of entertainment.”

The venue’s other show Stella—The Time Machine Journey features a participation element “that encourages kids and families to move and dance together in the biggest time machine ever built.” The family-friendly experience is a new addition to the venue, according to a statement.

On Saturday nights as well as other select days, the space will become a dancefloor complete with projections called PY1 Nights. These nights have previously had different themes depending on the date including Candy World, Underworld, and Pop and have encouraged guests “to express their creativity by dressing the part.”

Tickets are already on sale for all three experiences starting at $40.50 for Through the Echoes, $23.50 for Stella—The Time Machine Journey, and $38 for the first PY1 Night on New Year’s Eve. The venue can also be used for special events and corporate occasions.
