As if producing the biggest grossing film of all time wasn’t enough, James Cameron has announced that his technologically ground-breaking and multi-award winning sci-fi epic will embark on a series of huge arena shows in collaboration with Cirque Du Soleil, the spellbinding mix of circus arts and street entertainment. After grossing a mind-boggling £1.6 billion ($2.7 billion) across the globe and scooping three Oscars, the cinematic phenomenon will be interpreted into the field of performing arts in what surely promises to be a visual spectacle that simply cannot be missed.

Cirque Du Soleil's performance of "Ka" was cut short on Saturday (29th June 2013) following the death of one of the troop's performers Sarah Guyard-Guillot. The 31-year-old performer seems to have slipped from her harness, during a performance in Las Vegas, and fallen around 50 feet to the stage below.

In a horrifying witness account, Dan Mosqueda speaking to the Las Vegas Sun described his experience as an audience member, saying that Ms. Guyard-Guillot was being hoisted when it seemed she slipped out of her safety wire, plummeting into "an open pit": "Initially, a lot of people in the audience thought it was part of the [show]," he said. "But you could hear screaming, then groaning, and we could hear a female artist crying from the stage." The show continued for a few moments until the nightmarish truth set in: the show quickly stopped and a recorded voice dismissed audience members, informing them they were entitled to a refund even though the incident occurred in the final acts of the Kà show. The injured performer was rushed to Las Vegas' University Medical Center where she pronounced dead at 11.43pm.
