In his return to directing, Jeannot Painchaud presents a show positively crackling with daring and modernity. Cirque Éloize’s brand new creation, iD is a blend of circus arts and urban dance: b-boying/b-girling, breakdance, hip-hop and more. The scene is set in the heart of a city, in a public space where people seek refuge and a chance to shed their anonymity; a place where identity is forged and individuality is expressed to a stimulating soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves (Beast) and Alex McMahon.
The company is integrating multimedia for the first time in its 7th original creation, giving this show a unique feel. Seventeen performers from 12 disciplines help create iD 's entertaining and resolutely urban universe, in keeping with Cirque Éloize’s tradition of using multidisciplinary performers from around the world.
