From Jul 26 through Sept 4, 2011.
Through large-scale projections evocative of the streets of Calle Ocho, the Port of Miami and the graffiti walls of the Wynwood Art District, audiences at Cirque Éloize iD will be immediately immersed in a metropolis very much like Miami – a city perpetually transforming itself in the process of finding a new identity.
The stage of the Ziff Ballet Opera House will come alive with the boundless energy of acrobats, break dancers, contortionists and a fearless stunt biker who perform against a kaleidoscope of eye-popping video drawn from science-fiction films, comic books and graffiti.
An exciting, moving, and unforgettable modern circus blending the daring soundtrack of rock, hip-hop, and electronica with the romantic heart of West Side Story, iD showcases the unique talents of a troupe of over 16 international artists – masters of hand-to-hand acrobatics, contortion, in-line skating, hip-hop, modern dance, break dance, and Cyr wheel all leading up to a stunning finale on the one-of-a-kind video trampowall. As each distinct personality begins to emerge, the setting of iD is transformed into a place where diversity is nurtured, friendships are forged, love is created and identity is embraced.
