Singapore is in for a thrilling experience of circus arts and urban dance as Cirque Eloize iD returns in February 2016. 15 world class stage performers combined with ten circus disciplines will wow audiences with a spectacular, high-energy production blending jaw dropping acrobatics, hip hop and street dance into one show at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands. Tickets are now on sale.
Set against an urban backdrop, you will be transported into the vibrant streets at the heart of a big city. The stage comes alive with the boundless energy of acrobats, break dancers, contortionists and a fearless stunt biker who perform against a kaleidoscope of eye-popping multimedia elements drawn from science-fiction films, comic books and graffiti. All this action is accompanied by a rock and electronica inspired soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves and Alex McMahon.
The show’s founder and artistic director, Jeannot Painchaud says, “It is a great pleasure to return to Singapore with our urban tale, filled with color, passion and energy. In keeping with the company’s tradition, with iD we’ve again combined different art forms – this time urban dance – to infuse their energy and edginess to the acrobatic performances. Now imagine two rival gangs, sharing a public place at the heart of a city, and seeking to express their iDentity and inDividuality, and you have iD.”
Cirque Eloize iD presents the unique talents of an international troupe of artists, showcasing stunning skills such as juggling, contortion, in-line skating, stilts, Cyr wheel, hand balancing, straps, bike trial, Chinese pole and aerial silks, building to a spectacular finale on the dynamic trampowall.
