Quebec-based circus troupe Cirque Éloize will bring its latest production, Cirkopolis, to the Sydney Opera House in October, delivering a fusion of reality and fantasy.

Cirkopolis’ directors Dave St-Pierre and Jeannot Painchaud create a Fritzian factory-city, with giant gears and dark sculptural portals. Cirque Éloize’s 12 performers defy this gloom to magically overcome routine through physcial prowess, fantasy, music and humour. The resulting spectacle has led Perez Hilton to say “if Christopher Nolan directed the circus, it would be Cirkopolis.”

Cirkopolis will premiere at the Sydney Opera House from Thursday October 2 until Monday October 6, during the school holidays. Tickets are on sale now on the Sydney Opera House website.
