The Cast of Cirque Éloize iD in Singapore

 

1 June 2011, Singapore – Sixteen world class stage performers from a combination of ten circus disciplines have hit the stage at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre for a limited season from 1st till 26th June 2011. Described as the “West Side Story gone hip-hop circus”, Cirque Éloize iD transports you into the vibrant streets at the heart of a big city. You feel the energy from the acrobats, break dancers, contortionists and a fearless stunt biker with video projections drawn from science-fiction films, comic books and graffiti. iD explores the themes of iDentity, indiviDuality and autonomy.

More from the CEO and Artistic Director

Jeannot Painchaud, the CEO and Artistic Director for Cirque Éloize iD describes “I imagined this show at the heart of a city, where the omnipresence of image causes us to lose our reference points. I sought to create an estheticism at the crossroads of comic books, science-fiction movies and the rich universe of graffiti.” He continues “The decidedly rock, electronic and poetic music, coupled with the presence of video, highlight the show’s playful, energetic, youthful and urban aspects.”

Jeannot has been with the company since its inception, being one of its early founders . In his early years, he performed on stage, while providing artistic direction to the company. Upon leaving the stage in 1998, Jeannot devoted himself to direction of Cirque Éloize.
