With Cirkopolis, Cirque Éloize presents a show that combines the worlds of circus, dance and theatre. In the heart of a stern and imposing city in appearance, giant gears and dark portals symbolize a mechanism that crushes individuality.
Performing within an inventive stage design and accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, twelve acrobats and multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves and challenge the limits of the factory-city. In a world where fantasy provokes reality, the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of colour.
Cirkopolis will transport performers and spectators between dream and reality in an uninterrupted stream of acrobatics, music, images and drawings to delight the eye.
“There are much bigger shows than “Cirkopolis,” 90 minutes of circus-theater by the Cirque Éloize troupe of Montreal. But I’d bet there aren’t more beautiful ones.”
Cirque Éloize’s eight week Dance Consortium tour beginning on 17th February 2015 is not to be missed and Tickets for The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton are now on sale. We will update you as further venues go on sale.
