“Cirque Éloize puts aside its urban circus DNA and rides into town on a new steed”
– LE DEVOIR, MONTREAL
Picture this: America is under construction. The West is booming. The railroad is being developed. In the middle of the desert, a town comes to life. A saloon opens its doors. A place to gather and share tales, it quickly becomes a theatre for stories of all kinds. In Cirque Éloize’s Saloon, the infectious energy of folk music sets the tone to an acrobatic comedy that sweeps the spectators away in a mad rush. Enigmatic, colourful characters come together and reveal themselves, resulting in a series of unexpected situations, unfolding to the rhythm of acrobatic prowess and original choreographies. Under the spell of the saloon’s beautiful Belle, the lover sets off a chase worthy of the greatest Westerns. The lovebirds on the run wreak havoc everywhere on their path; from the deserted plains to the depth of the mines— until the ultimate acrobatic showdown. Walking through Saloon’s doors means entering a mythical atmosphere created by live music and the exhilarating pace of spectacular performances.
Swing open the Saloon doors and lasso up some fun for the entire family. Enter a mythical world where theatre and circus collide for 85 minutes of non-stop live folk music combined with strength, agility and original choreography. Under the spell of Saloon’s beautiful Belle, the lover sets off in a chase worthy of the greatest Westerns for an action-packed theatrical thrill-ride!
The action-packed musical acrobatic adventure features original choreography and beloved tunes by Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline played by four on-stage musicians and singers.
