  • Cirque Éloize previews their new show "Cirkopolis" at Kingston's Academy Green Park.

The Montreal-based circus troupe recently signed a five-year commitment with Proctor’s Theatre in Schenectady, making the historic venue their seasonal New York home. Last month, Cirque Éloize paid Chronogram a special visit to preview their new show “Cirkopolis,” a combination of theater, dance, and circus arts that is inspired by movies about totalitarian societies. Opening with a dismal city scene, the show progressively reveals the possibility for vibrant individuality despite a suffocating political regime. Watch Stephen Blauweiss’s video preview of “Cirkopolis,” performed at Kingston’s Academy Green Park, and look for a preview of Cirque Éloize’s season in our August issue.
