In the heart of a stern and imposing city, giant gears and dark portals symbolize a mechanism that crushes individuality. Accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, 12 acrobats and multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves and challenge the limits of the factory-city. In a world where fantasy provokes reality, the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of colour. Bursting with stylish, spell-binding visuals, Cirkopolis is an astounding feast of gravity-defying acts, sinuous movement and transporting original music – a joyous blend of spectacle, creativity and skill from some of the best circus performers on the planet.
