Cirque Eloize

Extraordinary show.  Incredible, energetic, fast-paced, edge of your seat, breathless, jaw-droppingly A-mazing!  In the words of my theatre companion – “Can’t believe what I just saw. Cirque de Soleil meets Parcour, with a liberal seasoning of hip hop urban swag. I totally, totally recommend this. GO AND SEE IT!!

Cirque Eloize

The athleticism, skill, dance and gymnastics of all but particularly the flexibility of the contortionist; muscular strength of the participants that ribbon danced or managed to ‘walk’ their legs a 360* up and over whilst suspended from a pole; the timing and skill required to trampoline onto, over, through people, spaces and from height; the strength and control involved whilst manoevering a bike through obstacles and then jumping on one wheel over objects and up stairways; juggling vertically, horizontally, bouncing of walls and using not 3 or 4 or 5 of 6 or 7 or 8 but 9 balls at a time!    OMG!  OMG!  OMG!

At one point during the production I looked down our audience row.. to see a whole lot of gaping mouths as their jaws, quite literally, had dropped!

Not sure where their tour will take them but if they’re anywhere near you… GO!!
