Make Believe Comes Alive at Big Sandy Arena
"This is a show for all ages", Veronica Hordubay, Marketing Manager at the SMG managed Big Sandy Superstore Arena, said. "We believe this show appeals not only to the seasoned Cirque enthusiast, but also to the child who sits in the classroom and dreams of another world."

Cirkopolis, Cirque Eloize dives into a vibrant imaginary world, pushing the boundaries of visual and audio innovation through different forms of projections. The unique imagery that takes us into this industrial yet fanciful sculptural universe is inspired by the rich visual world of comic books.
In this scenic universe, dance, circus and theatre meet, and the characters and objects are brought to life by the breath of poetry and musicality. Awash with humor,
Cirkopolis is a place where reality encounters fantasy and the pursuit of our true place in the world reveals its vital importance. It will plunge the spectator into true audio and visual vertigo.
"Our simple, yet powerful imagery leads the audience on a fictional journey. To the sound of an original score, eclectic characters spring to life, meeting on the border of reality and fantasy, in a creative space where anything is possible," explains Jeannot Painchaud, artistic director of Cirkopolis.
The 12 artists will perform several advanced acrobatic disciplines, including diabolo, Spanish web, teeterboard, Cyr wheel and contortion. Projections on the back wall, complete with pivoting panels used by the performers, contribute to the dream-like décor inspired by a surrealistic and clown-like vision.
Cirkopolis will transport performers and spectators between dream and reality in an uninterrupted stream of acrobatics, music, images and drawings to delight the eye. Visit http://www.cirque-eloize.com/en/home to see the wonder and majesty that is Cirque Eloize.
