CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - WORLDS AWAY is a musical fantasy in which a couple enter a parallel universe in which acts from various Cirque Du Soleil shows perform.

Threat

The tone is dreamlike and surreal, featuring characters who are often bizarre and sometimes slightly creepy. The hero and heroine are occasionally threatened by people they meet, such as a human-sized spider and a beetle, and some fighters. In one sequence a man misses a trapeze and falls to the circus ring below, although he is later seen to be unhurt.

Some of the performances include acts that could result in harm if copied by young children. These include a scene in which a man reads a paper and is set alight. His clothes burn for some time and he appears relatively unconcerned. There are also some brief glimpses of traditional carnival acts, such as a woman 'swallowing' and bringing up a small dagger and another woman appearing to hammer a small nail up her nose. However, there is no focus on these.
