Archived: Cirkopolis

by Cirque Eloize

The acclaimed circus extravaganza Cirkopolis, by Montreal-based troupe Cirque Éloize, is set to thrill Auckland for a week long season at the conclusion of its world tour. 

Twelve multi-disciplined acrobatic artists challenge the limits of gravity with their physical prowess, and bring to the stage their irrepressible French-Canadian humour, style and colour.
This is the ultimate family show, filled with a mind-blowing blend of acrobatics, theatre, and dance set against a breath-taking and imposing urban cityscape.   

Performing within an inventive stage design, and accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, they live in a world where fantasy defies reality — the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of colour.
“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 its humor, at once serious and light-hearted. Entering Cirkopolis is all about letting go and allowing yourself to be borne aloft by hope,” explains Cirque Éloize Cirkopolis artistic director and co-director Jeannot Painchaud.

To celebrate the start of summer, the tickets to the show are now $50 (excluding Premium, Student and Child tickets).

Cirque Eloize company members have prepared another surprise for Aucklanders in the form of a special performance at Summer in the Square on the Wed 6 December. Catch them in front of the Aotea Centre stairs from 12.35pm to 12.55pm.
