New details emerge on “Rivers of Light” lagoon show at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom

in Disney, Walt Disney World

Set to debut in the spring of 2016, the new “Rivers of Light” show will take place on Discovery River, located between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom.

The show will combine live music, floating lanterns, water screens, and animal imagery.

The nighttime entertainment event, choreographed by Ulka Simone Mohanty, will begin with the arrival of two Shamans, which are two complimentary forces who come to Discovery River bringing gifts of light. With their assistants, also called Acolytes, the Shamans will set out from the shore in lantern vessels, while a dramatic dance of water and life takes place to summon animal spirits.

Disney Creative Entertainment is seeking contemporary and Bollywood-style dancers for roles in this new nighttime show.
