WORLD PREMIERE OF CIRQUE ÉLOIZE SALOON SWINGS INTO FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO THIS AUGUST

Top Contemporary Circus Troupe Dazzles with Musical, Acrobatic Wild Wild West Adventure


MASHANTUCKET, CT (August 4, 2016) - 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

 

 "After an immensely successful 2015 Foxwoods residency of Cirque Éloize iD, we are thrilled to welcome the talented Cirque Éloize troupe back to Foxwoods, where our guests will be the first in the world to see this iconic organization's latest show, Cirque Éloize Saloon," said Monique Sebastian, Vice President of Entertainment, Foxwoods Resort Casino. "We're bringing dazzling acts to southeastern Connecticut all summer long, and with their masterful combination of music and acrobatic comedy, Cirque Éloize Saloon is sure to wow our guests from start to finish."

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.
