WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A leader in the world of contemporary circus, Cirque Eloize has been creating moving performances filled with magic since 1993. Based on the talents of its artists, Cirque Eloize expresses its innovative nature through theatricality and humanity, and combines circus arts with music, dance and theatre.
In his return to directing, Jeannot Painchaud presents a show crackling with daring and modernity. The brand new creation iD is a blend of circus arts and urban dance: b-boying, breakdance, hip hop and more. The scene is set in the heart of the city, in a public space where people seek refuge and a chance to shed their anonymity; a place where identity is forged and individuality is expressed to a stimulating soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves (Beast) and Alex McMahon. This dazzling new production incorporates multimedia elements, giving this show a unique feel. 14 performers from a dozen disciplines help create iD's entertaining and unmistakeably urban universe, in keeping with Cirque Eloize's tradition of using multidisciplinary performers from around the world. Running time: 1hr 55mins (including one 20 min interval)
