Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of CIRKOPOLIS!

NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts presents the New York City premiere of CIRKOPOLIS, the critically acclaimed show by Montreal-based troupe Cirque Eloize for a strictly limited engagement opening last night, December, 19th, 2013 and concluding on Sunday, January 5th, 2014 at NYU Skirball Center (566 LaGuardia Place, New York, New York, 10012). BroadwayWorld was there for opening night and you can check out photos from the theatre arrivals below!

From the architect of the astonishing acrobatics at the 2006 Olympic Games closing ceremonies (Cirque Éloize's Artistic Director Jeannot Painchaud) and the world-renowned choreographer of Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity and LOVE (Dave St-Pierre) comes a magnificent circus spectacle that lives between dream and reality, underscored by a continuous stream of original music, and brought to vivid life by 3-D projections. With CIRKOPOLIS, Cirque Éloizetakes 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. In a world where fantasy provokes reality, the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of color.
