This is not just any circus, it is a Quebecois circus!
It is a Wild West circus with a story and it’s going to be great fun!
85 minutes of sure shootin’ rip roarin’ thigh slappin’ high energy entertainment with 8 acrobats and live musicians playing the music of Patsy Klein and Johnny Cash, a little Lead Belly too! What’s this show that’s not to be missed? Why it’s
the juggling-est, lasso-est, musical acrobatic adventure in the Wild West. 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, colorful characters come together and reveal themselves, resulting in a series of unexpected situations, unfolding to the rhythm of acrobatic prowess and original choreography. 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. Saloon is the physical energy of acrobatics combined with the poetry of the theatrical approach, a touch of comedy and the musical roots of our childhood.
