Cirque Éloize

When: Wed., Feb. 13, 7 p.m. 2019

Well, howdy there, partner. Ten multitalented artists from the contemporary circus company Cirque Éloize burst through swinging doors into a fantasy version of the American Old West in the awe-inspiring spectacle Saloon. Employing elements of circus artistry such as aerial straps, Korean plank (also known as teeterboard) and the Cyr wheel, these high-flying entertainers tell a love story chock-full o’ comedy and theatricality. Four musicians and singers accompany the action with live renditions of country classics and folk-inspired compositions. Says Jeannot Painchaud, president and chief creative officer of the Montréal-based company, “I see the saloon as a place of improbable encounters; a fabulous playground for artistic exploration.”

Price: $25-60.
