When Cirque Éloize iD made its South African debut at Montecasino’s Teatro in 2014, audiences were literally blown away by this bewildering high-energy production that blends breathtaking acrobatics and street dance. Word spread quickly and “iD” became the hottest ticket in town. Owing to critical acclaim and rave reviews, “iD” sold out fast, thereby creating an unprecedented demand for its return.
Cirque Éloize iD is back and returns to The Teatro at Montecasino’s on Wednesday, 30 November 2016, running until 24 December 2016.
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 seven years by more than 1 million spectators in nearly 950 performances in almost 100 cities across the globe in 23 countries.
A high-energy blend of circus arts and urban dance, iD is a production for the young at heart featuring an inspiring soundtrack and innovative video projections. Acrobats, aerialists, a trial biker, and hip hop and break dancers come together to create a microcosmic society where two groups celebrate everyone’s distinct identity.
There’s speed, power and a cacophony of sounds as everything comes together in the unprecedented spectacular trampoline-finale. The show’s energy and poetry will surpass the expectations of audiences and is guaranteed to leave them in awe.
In 2014 City Buzz enthusiastically remarked, “From the first siren wail to its astonishing trampoline finale, Cirque Éloize iD shocked, amused and enthralled as it brought the wonders of the circus to a contemporary audience.”
The Tonight praised the performers; “They’re using their heads to appeal to their peers and in the same space, attracting audiences for the sheer spectacle of their striking showmanship.”
“The runaway success of the show’s first season in 2014 says it all – this is a unique and massively exciting show for the whole family,” says Hazel Feldman of Showtime Management who added, “This mind-blowing fusion of new theatrical circus and urban dance is an absolute must “do” on every year-end calendar!”
iD features a cast of 15 acrobats and performers, and incorporates innovative multimedia elements, as well as a rock and electronica inspired soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves and Alex McMahon. In Cirque Éloize’s iD, acrobatic disciplines are combined with the energy of hip-hop and street dances, giving a fresh and high octane spin to modern circus.
