Cirque Éloize’s acclaimed show Cirkopolis headed to NZ

The critically acclaimed circus extravaganza Cirkopolis (by Montreal-based troupe Cirque Éloize) is set to thrill audiences in Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland for a strictly limited seasons from 14 November 2017.

As its triumphant world tour draws to its end, this will be the first and only time New Zealand audiences will get to see this Drama Desk Award-winning production.

Twelve multi-disciplined acrobatic artists challenge the limits of gravity with their physical prowess, and bring to the stage their irrepressible French-Canadian humour, style and colour.

This is the ultimate family show, filled with a mind-blowing blend of acrobatics, theatre, and dance set against a breath-taking and imposing urban cityscape.


Performing within an inventive stage design, and accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, they live in a world where fantasy defies reality — the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of colour.

Since the show began touring in September 2012, it has received rave reviews from the public and critics alike. New York Post wrote “Extraordinary! There’s the circus, and then there’s Cirque Éloize. These guys are on a whole other level.” Perez Hilton said “If Christopher Nolan directed the circus, it would be CIRKOPOLIS. Moody. Sexy. A must-see!”
