The awe-inspiring and gravity defying spectacle that is the Cirque Eloize iD, is starting its 10 day schedule tonight - unfolding at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Presented as part of a the three month long Summer is Dubai campaign, Cirque Eloize is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer, having wowed audiences in 440 cities across the world since 1993.
The offshoot ‘iD’ is debuting for the first time in the Middle East and features 15 artists, 12 circus disciplines and a host of urban dance acts including break-dance, hip-hop and numerous breathtaking acrobatics synonymous with the show.
“For 20 years now, Cirque Éloize has been combining circus arts with music, dance and theatre in a path-breaking and original manner,” said Jeannot Painchaud, Cirque Éloize President and Artistic Director. “iD is no exception. The name of the show “iD” stands for Identity; it is an urban city tale, filled with colour, passion and energy.”
Sound & Stage was treated to a twenty minute live taster of the show just yesterday, and it looks destined to be one of the hottest tickets of the summer...
