Cirkopolis in Philadelphia from March 11-16!!!

BROADWAY PHILADELPHIA presents the Philadelphia premiere of Cirkopolis, the critically acclaimed show by Montreal-based troupe Cirque Eloize for a strictly limited engagement at the Merriam Theater from March 11 – March 16.

With Cirkopolis, Cirque √Čloize takes their breathtaking blend of circus arts, theater, and dance to a highly-stylized metropolis setting, where twelve acrobats and multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves and challenge the limits of the factory-city as only they can.

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this performance. It started out with a laborer at an office desk in a sea of gray; gray backdrop, gray desk, gray suits etc. with very dark music. I get the symbolism of the day to day grind of a laborer being without color or excitement, but I kept wondering if this was anything like the other cirque shows I've seen with the juggling, death defying rope tricks, balancing acts and more. After a few minutes the jaw dropping stunts started and I was hooked! I was blown away by the muscle control and balance these individuals possessed. They went from spinning around a rope or pole to holding their body, stock still and parallel to the ground within seconds. It was very impressive. The show was full of contortionists, jugglers, acrobats, rope and trapeze choreography and so much more. I can only imagine the amount of trust the company members must have in each other.

Tickets ranging from $25 to $75 can be purchased by calling 215-731-3333, online at, at the Kimmel Center box office, Broad & Spruce Sts. (open daily 10 am to 6 pm) or at the Merriam Theater box office, 250 S. Broad St. (open during performances only).
