Part of Circus Series series.
PRESENTED BY Melbourne Festival in association with Philip and Caroline Cornish
DIRECTED BY DAVE ST-PIERRE & JEANNOT PAINCHAUD
In a grey, industrialised world, a bored office worker’s imagination takes flight, transforming his workplace into a wonderland of juggling, jaw-dropping acrobatics and exquisite contortion.
“These guys are on a whole other level. It seems that everything is more: more difficult, more daring, more ambitious.”
Bursting with stylish, spellbinding visuals, Cirkopolis is an astounding feast of gravity-defying acts, sinuous movement and transporting original music – a joyous blend of spectacle, creativity and skill from some of the best circus performers on the planet.
In 2014, Cirkopolis won the Drama Desk Award for best Unique Theatrical Experience.
Melbourne loves Cirkopolis!
“A particularly stunning amalgam of theater, modern dance, original music, evocative projections and top-notch circus skills”
