In This Season
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEW ZEALAND
Cirque Éloize’s Cirkopolis is set to thrill audiences in Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland for strictly limited season this November and December.
This will be the first and only time New Zealand audiences will get to see this Drama Desk Award winning production.
Cirkopolis has visited 20 countries and more than 70 cities in London, New-York and Sydney. Combining dance, theatre and circus with a splash of humour, Cirkopolis renews and transcends these disciplines to create a show where the artists are allowed to express their freedom.
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 symbolise 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.
Full houses and rave reviews
Since the tour began in 2012, it has received rave reviews from the public and critics all over the world. “There aren’t more beautiful (shows than Cirkopolis)”, said the New York Times. The New York Post even adds that “there’s the circus, and then there’s Cirque Éloize. These guys are on a whole other level!” Reviews all goes in the same direction: Cirkopolis touches the audiences with its “impressive combination of playful drama and daring acrobatics”, as written by Vecer, Ljubljana in Slovenia. Soon, local audiences here will be joining the thousands of worldwide fans enthralled by Cirque Éloize’s Cirkopolis.
A driving force in the circus art reinvention movement, Cirque Éloize has been creating award-winning entertainment content for nearly 25 years and ranks among the world’s leading contemporary circuses. Cirque Éloize has taken part in numerous prestigious international festivals and has seduced both New York’s Broadway and London’s West End. Its productions are crafted for a wide range of audiences and have been embraced by over 50 cultures. In the last 24 years, Cirque Éloize’s 12 productions have proudly boasted more than 5,500 performances in over 500 cities and have been seen by over 3,5 million spectators. In addition to its touring shows, more than 1,500 Cirque Éloize-designed events have taken place worldwide.
