FirstWorks Presents - Cirque Eloize: Cirkopolis
The FirstWorks season kicks off at PPAC with Cirkopolis, a spectacular show by Montreal-based Cirque Éloize that transports performers and spectators between dream and reality in an uninterrupted stream of dazzling acrobatics, illusions, and imagery. Cirkopolis dives into a vibrant world, alive with video projections and an original musical score that push the boundaries of visual and audio innovation.
Performing within an inventive stage design, twelve acrobats and multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves, and challenge the limits of an imposing factory-city of giant gears and dark portals. Cirkopolis unfolds scene by scene like an elemental universe with sculptural imagery: jugglers brave the space, a contortionist is lifted by her companions in a surge of inspiration, and aerial artists defy the height of the skyscrapers. Don’t miss seeing this one-of-a-kind company which has captivated audiences in 36 countries!
Cirque Éloize has partnered with Cirque du Soleil® for a long-term relationship based on common creative visions and international entertainment appeal.
