Stunning acrobatic feats, spectacular circus skills and theatrical thrills: all in a day’s work for the folks of Cirque Éloize, whose latest show, Saloon, is opening at the Peacock Theatre.
They took over our Instagram account for a day to give us a sneak preview of their awe-inspiring preparations for a performance – check it out here.
Inspired by the rich legacy of the Wild West, Saloon showcases the company’s trademark blend of spectacular circus and drama to create the colourful characters swinging through the saloon doors.
Directed by Emmanuel Guillaume, Saloon thrums with infectious energy and phenomenal physical feats as the 11 extraordinary cast members perform a theatrical thrill-ride.
With a soundtrack of non-stop live folk and country music, from Patsy Cline to Johnny Cash, and original compositions by celebrated Canadian composer Éloi Painchaud, the production is a foot-stomping, lasso-throwing night of entertainment.
