Eleven multi-talented performers rebel against the monotony of a dark mechanical city in this breathtaking production by world circus phenomenon Cirque Éloize (Rain and iD). An exhilarating stream of acrobatic feats from start to finish, Cirkopolis fuses gravity-defying circus, original music and spellbinding imagery, transporting performers and audience alike to a magical world in which fantasy confronts reality.

"Cirkopolis was imagined as a crossroads — between imagination and reality, between individuality and community, between limits and possibilities. The show is driven by the poetic impulse of life, the physical prowess of the circus and the humour, at once serious and light-hearted. Entering Cirkopolis is all about letting go and allowing yourself to be borne aloft by hope"
