Win 1 of 10 double tickets to Cirque Éloize iD

Cirque Éloize’s iD made its South African debut at Montecasino’s Teatro in 2014, and as word spread it quickly became the hottest ticket in town.

Now the show is back in South Africa at Cape Town’s Artscape and again at Johannesburg’s Montecasino!

It’s a blend of circus arts and urban dance (“b-boying” and “b-girling”, breakdance and hip-hop), with the show’s theme set in the heart of the city, speaking to people’s identity and anonymity all in one go.


Directed by Jeannot Painchaud and brought to South Africa by leading local promoter Showtime Management, Cirque Éloize’s iD has been enjoyed over the past seven years by more than one million spectators in more than 1 000 performances in almost 100 cities in 23 countries around the world.

iD features a cast of 15 acrobats and performers, and incorporates innovative multimedia elements, as well as a rock and electronica-inspired soundtrack created by composers Jean-Phi Goncalves and Alex McMahon. In Cirque Éloize’s iD acrobatic disciplines are combined with the energy of hip-hop and street dances, giving a fresh and high-octane spin to modern circus.

Painchaud says, “It is with great pleasure that we bring this urban tale, filled with colour, passion and energy to Cape Town for the very first time. We are also pleased to be back in Johannesburg where we played to packed houses in 2014.”
