CANADIAN PREMIERE

Two couples meet for dinner to take their minds off the war raging around them. An unexpected profession of love, an untimely proposal, and one kiss later, one of the foursome lies dead on the floor. Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderón's newest play breaks open cultural barriers, challenging us to confront the limits of our own understanding...

"[Calderon is] Chile's most acclaimed playwright-director of the last two decades"

Larry Switzky, Assistant Professor at University of Toronto, discusses Beckett's love for visual art and the relationship between his late plays and sculpture.
"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”
- Jeannot Painchaud, creative director of Cirque Éloize and co-director of Cirkopolis.
