Cirque Éloize’s finale draws in a roaring crowd

​​Dubai, UAE: What an exhilarating 10 days for circus fans across the UAE! Cirque Éloize’s eclectic summer hit show, iD, concluded its first ever appearance in the Middle East with its out-of-this-world acrobatics and breath taking stunts. With 15 talented artists and 12 circus disciplines, the audience were left captivated and on the edge of their seats.

iD closed its Dubai chapter with a bang and an echoing applaud of dazzled spectators at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). Cirque Éloize’s iD followed a multidisciplinary artistic approach with a blend of contemporary circus performance, dance and theatre.

Commenting on the finale, Jeannot Painchud, Cirque Éloize President and Artistic Director, said, “It is with great pleasure we announce the successful finale of our Dubai chapter. We are delighted to have brought such a magical experience to the Middle East and are keen on bringing iD, and Cirque Éloize’s other shows back to this region in the near future.”


Cirque Éloize was presented as part of ‘Summer is Dubai’, a 3-month long campaign organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, which is aimed at positioning Dubai as the summer destination of choice for families across the UAE and from the region and around the world.
