Cirque du Soleil’s 'Luzia'

  • Starting at $36

You’ll flip over this scenic show.

Step right up and see the light when Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia swings into the Big Top at Suffolk Downs this summer. After a decade living and traveling in Mexico, writer and director Daniele Finzi Pasca penned the spectacle—in collaboration with Brigitte Poupart—to bring audiences on a vibrant journey through the country. Each of the 11 numbers is inspired by a different region or period in Mexican history, as 44 artists perform on sets built around the themes of light (“luz” in Spanish) and rain (“lluvia”) —including a massive downpour producing different shapes and patterns. Run away to the circus when Luzia comes to Suffolk Downs from June 27 to Aug. 12. / Julia Aparicio

Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia lands at the Big Top at Suffolk Downs from June 27 to Aug. 12. (617-568-3216) cirquedusoleil.com. See website for complete details.

Southern Beauty

  • $20

Sally Mann has gained plenty of accolades during her 40-year photography career, but she’s never had an international traveling exhibit of her work until now.

Sally Mann has gained plenty of accolades during her 40-year photography career, but she’s never had an international traveling exhibit of her work until now. Before shadowing in Paris next year, A Thousand Crossings will fill the Peabody Essex Museum with 115 images from the woman who was once named “America’s Best Photographer” by Time magazine. Including some previously unpublished photos, the collection portrays Mann’s vision of the South while exploring themes on family, the land, racism and mortality. Grappling with a region and its people and places that were torn apart by racism and violence, the pictures capture scenes ranging from her three kids playing near a remote cabin in Virginia (Easter Dress, pictures) to photographs of Civil War battlefields. / Nicole Rodger
