Cape Town – High-energy production that blends breathtaking acrobatics and street dance, Cirque Éloize iD is making its Cape Town debut at Artscape next month.

Directed by Jeannot Painchaud and brought to South Africa by leading local promoter, Showtime Management, Cirque Éloize’s iD has been enjoyed over the past 7 years by more than 1 million spectators in over 1000 performances in almost 100 cities across the globe.

On stage, there’s speed, powerful performances and a jaw-dropping spectacular trampoline-finale that is guaranteed to leave the audience in awe. While behind the scenes there’s a story, a dream and a host of interesting facts and figures.

More about iD

“iD” is one of eleven original productions under the Cirque Éloize banner. Positioned at the heart of the renewal of circus arts this Montreal-based company has been creating moving performances filled with magic for more than 23 years.

In addition to its touring shows, Cirque Éloize develops custom made concepts for international special events. To date, more than 1,400 events have taken place, seen by over 3 million spectators.

Why you simply can’t miss out

With iD, Cirque Éloize presents a show positively crackling with daring and modernity. Cirque Éloize’s 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.

Fifteen performers from 14 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.
