We are very excited to be partnering with Cirque du Soleil to present #EVOKE13, a special event at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater on March 12. In line with the mission of Cirque du Soleil to “invoke the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world,” #EVOKE13 will feature a specially created act by Cirque du Soleil exclusively for SXSW 2013.
Joining Cirque du Soleil, Nerdist Industries founder, comedian, author, podcaster and AMC’s The Talking Dead host, Chris Hardwick will host a roundtable conversation along with cosplayer Meg Turney and Cirque du Soleil representatives. Also performing will be The Divine Fits who released one of 2012’s insanely acclaimed albums, A Thing Called Divine Fits (Merge), which landed on Rolling Stone's '50 Best of 2012' list. The night’s event will conclude with a set from GRAMMY® nominated producer, DJ Sam Spiegel (of N.A.S.A. and Maximum Hedrum).
Doors open at 7:00pm and the event starts at 8:00pm. All Interactive, Film, Music, Gold Platinum and Music wristband holders are welcome to attend.
Also remember to check out Cirque du Soleil at the Music conference panel: "Masterminds Behind the Music of Cirque du Soleil" which will take place at the Austin Convention Center, Room 12AB from 3:30-4:30pm on March 13.
