The Busy Giffs: A Night Out At Foxwoods Resort Casino with Cirque Eloize

A Night Out At Foxwoods Resort Casino with Cirque Eloize

What a weekend! Yesterday was a State Holiday and with Good Friday and Easter, it ended up being a very fun 4 day weekend! We spent Saturday night with friends at Foxwoods Resort Casino, checking out another Cirque Eloize Show at the Fox Theater. Last year, we saw their show Saloon, and loved it so we were excited to see this show, Cirkopolis.


According to the websiteWith Cirkopolis, Cirque √Čloize takes their breathtaking blend of circus arts, theatre and dance to a highly-stylized metropolis setting where multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony, reinvent themselves, and challenge the limits of the factory-city as only they can. Performing within an inventive stage design and accompanied by an original musical score and video projections, they live in a world where fantasy defies reality—the veil of anonymity and solitude is lifted and replaced by bursts of humour and colour. Cirkopolis transforms the classic film Metropolis into a virtuosic circus spectacle for the whole family. 

It's such an existentialist piece, starting with a fully industrialized set, and slowly adds in pops of color until the end of the show.  I was enthralled the whole time.
Check out this short video to see some of the amazingness that you'll see!


I absolutely love the Chinese Pole and was so excited when I saw it come out, but fell in love with the German Wheel this time! I had never seen that before!  The two friends we went with had never been to a Cirque Eloize show before so I loved listening to their gasps and the muttered "oh my gosh" as the performers flew through the air or dropped towards the ground. The sheer strength of the performers is awe-inspiring.


It was so nice to spend the night out with friends at such an amazing show! I'm so thankful that Foxwoods Resort Casino invited us and I can't wait to see what Cirque Eloize comes up with next!
