Last week, I had the pleasure of seeing Cirque Éloize with my gal pal, Nicole Yeary. It was awesome, and I don’t mean “awesome” in the played-out way. I mean- like these kids had us in awe. Some things just really transcend language and I’m sure that’s part of the reason they don’t cloud the show with any talking of any kind.
Oh- and if you’re like me, you’ll wish you had worked out before the show.
From the website:
In his return to directing, Jeannot Painchaud presents a show positively crackling with daring and modernity. Cirque Éloize’s brand new creation, iD is a blend of circus arts and urban dance: b-boying/b-girling, breakdance, hip-hop and more. The scene is set in the heart of a 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.
The company is integrating multimedia for the first time in its 7th original creation, giving this show a unique feel. Sixteen performers from 12 disciplines help create iD ‘s entertaining and resolutely urban universe, in keeping with Cirque Éloize’s tradition of using multidisciplinary performers from around the world.
Ticket prices are $20 to $75.
