In a nutshell:
TOP CIRCUS, DANCE AND MUSIC ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE •
WHERE CIRCUS MEETS THE STREETS
Created in 2009, Cirque Éloize’s iD is a blend of circus arts and urban dance : b-boying/b-girling, breakdance and hip-hop. The scene is set in the heart of a city, a place where identity is forged and individuality is expressed to a stimulating and original electronic soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves (Beast) and Alex McMahon.
Fifteen performers from 12 disciplines create this entertaining and resolutely urban universe, in keeping with Cirque Éloize’s tradition of using multidisciplinary performers from around the world. This ensemble piece sees all of the performers adding to the choreography with an outstanding technical crew behind them, including hip-hop choreographer Mourad Merzouki, set and video image co-designer Robert Massicotte, costumes by Linda Brunelle and great lighting effects from Nicolas Descoteaux
Positioned at the heart of the renewal of circus arts, Cirque Éloize has been creating moving performances filled with magic since 1993, continually striving for artistic perfection and expresssing its innovative nature through theatricality and humanity in a path-breaking and original manner.
