If you didn’t get to see Cirque Éloize iD when they first performed in South Africa in 2014, then now is your chance. Cirque Éloize iD is back at Montecasino’s Teatro by popular demand. Owing to critical acclaim and rave reviews, Cirque Éloize iD (pronounced Sirk-ehl-waz eye-dee) sold out fast in 2014, thereby creating an unprecedented demand for its return. We are sure the 2016 season will be no different.
The show is directed by Jeannot Painchaud and is brought to South Africa by one of the leading local promoters, Showtime Management. Cirque Éloize’s iD has been enjoyed over the past seven years by more than 1 million spectators in nearly 950 performances in almost 100 cities across the globe in 23 countries. Cirque Éloize’s iD features a cast of 15 acrobats and performers, it incorporates innovative multimedia elements, as well as a rock and electronica inspired soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves and Alex McMahon. The ID show concept was created in 2009.
You will be completely blown away by this fast paced, high-energy production that blends awe-inspiring acrobatics, circus arts and street dance together. Cirque Éloize iD is a production that can be enjoyed by the whole family. If features an inspiring soundtrack and innovative video projections that enhance the stage, add fantastic effects and create the background for the performance. The scene is set in the heart of a city. Acrobats, aerialists, a trail biker, b-boying/b-girling, hip hop and break dancers come together to create a wonderful mix of talent and gives each performer a chance to showcase their skills.
This combination of acrobatic disciplines and dance is giving a fresh and dynamic spin to the old circus concept and creates a new modern theatrical circus. The spectacular jaw-dropping trampoline finale is one of highlights of the show; it is dazzling and energetic. You will see the stage come alive with the performers. You will be captivated watching them gracefully work their way around the trampoline and the wall.
This show will surpass all your expectations and is guaranteed to leave you in awe.
