Two Amazing Hours!
By Galia Pennekamp
Is Cirque Eloize iD child-friendly? The answer is definitely YES. If you think that amazing acrobatic feats, pulsating music, and a colorful set and cast will keep your toddler’s attention, then I say go for it. Most kids 6 or above will certainly ooh and aahh as Cirque Eloize iD uses common items such as a bike, tennis balls, a trampoline, a dozen chairs, a pole and some rope to mesmerize their audience for two amazing hours. This edgy urban circus tells a story of a turf war and a love story that is settled by the astonishing talent of a beautiful and multicultural cast.
Set in a futuristic busy city, the performers and the audience move to the beat of techno, hip-hop and other modern sounds. Dressed in hip street clothes, the performers communicate with athletic artistry that leaves the audience wondering, “How do they do that?” Highlights include the most amazing bicycle stunts, juggling like you have never seen before, a contortionist that is graceful yet bizarre, and a trampoline act that defies gravity and feels like an optical illusion. All of this combined with break dancing, rollerblading, an aerial act, pole balancing and constant motion is the perfect blend for a unique and entertaining circus performance. Truly a family show that is as entertaining for the kids as it is for both moms and dads.
