Main Character Clown: an office worker, who dreams only of escaping everyday life. From a dark and gray office, his boredom will explode into bursts of colors as different characters enter his dreams.
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.
“Cirkopolis was imagined as a crossroads — between imagination and reality, between individuality and community, between limits and possibilities. The show is driven by the poetic impulse of life, the physical prowess of the circus and the humour, at once serious and light-hearted. Entering Cirkopolis is all about letting go and allowing yourself to be borne aloft by hope,” explained Jeannot Painchaud, creative director of Cirque Éloize and co-director of Cirkopolis.
Cirque Éloize, a leader in the contemporary circus arts since 1993, presents magic filled and innovative performances around the world.
