    Alchemy Project has announced that, after travelling through Europe and the US, Cirque Éloize’s latest production 'Cirkopolis' will be presented for the first time in Abu Dhabi at the du Forum, Yas Island from 17th-19th September, 2015.

    Cirkopolis is Cirque Éloize’s 9th original touring show and is co-directed by Dave St-Pierre and Jeannot Painchaud.

    Combining the worlds of circus, dance and theatre, the new show features 12 acrobats and multidisciplinary artists whose characters rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves and challenge the limits of the factory-city in which they live, Cirkopolis. Performing within an inventive stage design, and accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, the residents of Cirkopolis live in a world where fantasy defies reality.

    Artistic director and co-director, Jeannot Painchaud, explains: “Cirkopolis was imagined as a crossroads between imagination and reality, iindividuality and community, between limits and possibilities. The show is driven by the poetic impulse of life, the physical prowess of the circus and its humour, at once serious and light-hearted."

    Robert Massicotte’s stage design plunges the audience into a simple yet imaginatively sculptural universe. In the stern and imposing city of Cirkopolis, giant gears and dark portals symbolise a mechanism that crushes individuality. As the show unfolds, Cirque Éloize’s 12 performers defy this gloom and magically overcome routine through audacity, fantasy, music and humour.

    Tickets for Cirkopolis are on sale now here.
