Cirque Éloize, a leading worldwide contemporary circus troupe, is thrilled to unveil their latest creation, Cirque Éloize Saloon, at Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Fox Theater next month. This captivating and energetic show transports audiences to the height of the Wild Wild West era, telling the story of a piano tuner’s astonishing journey through a world filled with gold diggers, rail workers, chorus girls and cowboys. Mysterious and intriguing characters will light up the stage to explosive live music, resulting in a series of unexpected situations packed with rhythmic acrobatic prowess and original choreography. The series begins Friday, August 12 and runs through Sunday, August 21 for a total of 12 remarkable performances at a variety of family-family show times.

Constantly striving to find new ways to amaze audiences, Cirque Éloize expresses its inventive nature through combining physical energy with theatrical poetry. Éloize is a word that comes from the Magdalen Islands and means “flashes of heat lightning seen on the horizon.” The lightning symbolizes the heat and energy which feeds the troupe’s spirit and is a true inspiration from the founding members.

Based on the multidisciplinary talents of its artists, Cirque Éloize has been creating moving performances filled with magic since 1993 and has been partnered with Cirque du Soleil® since 2010. With eleven original productions, Cirque Éloize has presented more than 4,000 performances in over 500 cities and 50 countries.

To say that my husband and I were blown away with the show is a complete understatement. The strength and talent of the performers is just plain mind blowing and it’s truly something that you have to experience for yourself.  We saw Cirque Éloize iD at Foxwoods last summer and their new show was just as wonderful.
