The final battle from Cirque du Soleil's hit Las Vegas show KA was played out on the wall of Petco Park during the opening night of San Diego Comic-Con 2011. BroadwayWorld's Audra Stafford spoke to the artists and artistic director about the first-of-its-kind performance. Click below for the spot!

KA by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas made its first appearance at Comic-Con on opening night, Thursday, July 21st, with a dramatic showdown on the outside walls of PETCO Park in San Diego. This outdoor performance took place directly across the street from the San Diego Convention Center and included a display of dazzling 3-D projections. Created especially for Comic-Con, the performance told the adventurous tale of KA by turning the stadium facade into an interactive performance space featuring 3-D projections and live artists.

The audience got a bird's-eye view of a fierce battle pitting the Imperial Twins of KA and their allies against an enemy warrior tribe as the scene plays out on the surface of a 90-foot high vertical stage.

AD X MEDIA, one of the world's leading providers of large-scale indoor and outdoor mixed media projections, provided the technology for the 3-D projection elements of the performance.
