Cirkopolis at Foxwoods Resort Casino
This week we were invited to visit Foxwoods Resort Casino to view the opening day performance of Cirkopolis - Cirque Éloize's latest production that runs April 11th through April 15th at Foxwoods' Fox Theater.
Cirkopolis is a bit more 'gritty' than the last two shows Cirque Éloize presented at Foxwoods (read about them HERE and HERE). In Cirkopolis, the backdrop is a factory setting with black, white and grey tones depicting a shadow-like city skyline and revolving gear shifts from within a factory setting. The colorful costumes of many of the performers come to life and stood out beautifully from the monochromatic setting.
I thought the factory and work-themed backgrounds might not be a popular theme for the family-oriented audience, but I couldn't have been more wrong. There is plenty of humor and daredevil action to keep the children entertained -- and mom and dad on the edges of their seats.
Cirkopolis bills this production as:
"... a breathtaking blend of circus arts, theatre and dance to a highly-stylized metropolis setting where multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves, and challenge the limits of the factory-city as only they can. 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 humour and colour. Cirkopolis transforms the classic film Metropolis into a virtuosic circus spectacle for the whole family."
Here's a few pictures from the performance.
