Cirque Éloize Returns to Foxwoods with Cirkopolis

Cirkopolis by Cirque Éloize Comes to Foxwoods Resort Casino

Foxwoods Resort Casino has it all! Shopping, Gaming, and world class shows. One of my favorite family friendly shows is Cirque Éloize, a contemporary circus troupe, who return to Foxwoods to premiere their latest creation, Cirkopolis, at the Fox Theater.

The shows will run from Tuesday, April 11 through Saturday, April 15 for a total of seven thrill-seeking performances all taking place during Foxwoods’ Kids Week! (See more on Kids Week at https://www.foxwoods.com/kidsweek/)

Cirkopolis may be one of Cirque Éloize finest shows, as they take their breathtaking blend of circus arts, theater and dance to a highly-stylized metropolis setting. Cirkopolis features twelve acrobats and multidisciplinary artists who rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves and challenge the limits of the factory-city as only they can.

Through the paintings, the artists push back the limits imposed by the factory city and free themselves from the routine monotony. Inspired by the classic film Metropolis, Cirkopolis juggles the circus, theater and dance. Through an inventive staging, accompanied by music and dream video projections, this spectacle, both profound and poetic, is a family friendly event appealing to an audience of all ages.

And for a once in a lifetime VIP experience, families are invited to participate in a behind-the-scenes meet and greet with the Cirkopolis cast prior to their opening performance on April 11 at 12:30 p.m. as part of the "Behind the Scenes Family Experience"
