Cirque Éloize - SaloonDuration 1h20

Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, London, United Kingdom, WC2A 2HT

Saddle up for a journey to the Wild West as a world leader in contemporary circus, Cirque Éloize, blasts back into the West End with the UK Premiere of its new show Saloon.

Inspired by the rich legacy of the Wild West, Saloon showcases the company’s trademark blend of spectacular circus and drama to create the colourful characters swinging through the saloon doors.

This creation marks the first collaboration between Cirque Éloize and the show’s musical director, Eloi Painchaud. Staying close to the musical roots of the director, Saloon mixes country extracts with more festive, folk-inspired compositions. There are three musicians and singers on stage, and all the artists sing or play instruments.

Cirque Éloize has become a world leader in contemporary circus since the company was founded in 1993 by artistic director, and Eloi’s cousin, Jeannot Painchaud. The company specializes in creating shows that fuse circus arts with music, theatre and dance.

Directed by Emmanuel Guillaume, Saloon thrums with infectious energy and phenomenal physical feats as the 11 extraordinary cast members perform a theatrical thrill-ride.

With a soundtrack of non-stop live folk and country music, from Patsy Cline to Johnny Cash, and original compositions by celebrated Canadian composer Éloi Painchaud, the production is a foot-stomping, lasso-throwing night of entertainment.

Please Note: Under 5s are not admitted to this event.
