A female artist landed hard on her back during the “Swing-to-Swing” act tonight in the premiere performance of Cirque du Soleil’s “Luzia” at Marymoor Park near Redmond.

The show was stopped during the final acrobatic number and members of the “Luzia” emergency intervention team immediately assisted the performer, who was fully conscious and in a stable state the entire time as all safety protocols were respected, Cirque representatives said in a statement.

“After assessment, she was not transported to the hospital. She will return to her activities once our coaching team will have determined that she is fully ready. We thank you for your concern. ‘Luzia’ performances will keep going on as scheduled,” the statement continued.

The show stopped for about 15 minutes, and the crowd gave her a standing ovation as she was moved from the stage.

The show restarted with the finale scene.
