As of 2004, its creative studio and head office have been located in the well-known Gare Dalhousie, an architectural gem in the center of Old-Montreal, and is the departure station of the city’s first ever train of 1886 that traveled all the way to Vancouver.

In the center of the apparently imposing and stern city of Cirkopolis, dark portals and colossal gears stand to symbolize the meaninglessness of being ‘just another cog in the machine’, crushing any possibility of individuality. Performed within the parameters of an innovative stage design that is combined with beautiful video projections and an original music score, twelve diligent acrobats alongside multidisciplinary artists are seen rebelling against such monotony, in search of reinventing themselves as they are challenged by the restrictions of their factory-city. This results in the spectacular new dynamic of energies where reality is provoked by fantasy, such that the hideous veil of solitude and anonymity lifts off to be replaced by vigorous bursts of color.
The Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis show carries on scene by scene in the manner of an elemental universe, marked with sculptural imagery featuring jugglers braving the space, aerial artists defying the height of skyscrapers, and a contortionist being lifted by her friends in surge of inspiration. This experience quite similar to getting into the Cyr wheel’s dance, giving into the virtuosity of the thrill-providing diabolo, chasing the incredible motion of the German wheel alongside which one discovers what it is like to be someone who dreams of nothing other than dance.
Painchaud, who is Cirque Eloize’s creative director as well as the co-director of Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis, describes the show to have been imagined on crossroads; between reality and imagination; between community and the individual; between possibilities and limits. It is essentially driven by a rather poetic yearning for life, where the humor and the circus’s physical prowess, come together to simultaneously create a light-hearted and serious atmosphere.
