                            about the show:

                            Cirkopolis combines the worlds of circus, dance, and theater. In the heart of a stern and imposing city, giant gears and dark portals symbolize a mechanism that crushes individuality. Twelve 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 is lifted and replaced by bursts of color. 

                            Cirkopolis unfolds like an elemental universe: jugglers brave the space, a contortionist is lifted by her companions in a surge of inspiration, and aerial artists defy the height of skyscrapers. Experiencing Cirkopolis is stepping into the dance of the Cyr wheel, surrendering to the virtuosity of the diabolo, dreading the audacity of the German wheel, and discovering the candor of a man who dreams only of dancing.
