Positioned at the heart of the renewal of circus arts, Cirque Éloize has been creating moving performances filled with magic since 1993. Continually striving for artistic perfection, it is one of the leaders in contemporary circus arts. Based on the multidisciplinary talents of its artists, Cirque Éloize expresses its innovative nature through theatricality and humanity, and combines circus arts with music, dance and theatre in a path-breaking and original manner. With nine original productions to its credit, Cirque Éloize has presented almost 4,000 performances in over 436 cities and 36 countries. Cirque Éloize has taken part in numerous prestigious international festivals and recently seduces Broadway with its show Rain which has been touring that major network of theaters since Fall 2007.
In addition to its tour performances, Cirque Éloize develops custom made concepts for international special events. To date, more than 1000 events have taken place. Moreover, in
2003, Cirque Éloize organized the first festival of circus arts in North America – “La Semaine
des Arts du cirque” – in the Magdalen Islands. The company also founded the Fondation Éloize, which has a mission to help underprivileged youth through an introduction to circus arts and help develop the performing arts. The troupe “Artcirq”, made up of young Inuit living in Canada’s far north (Nunavut), is the first organization to benefit from this support.
Since 2004, Cirque Éloize’s head office and creative studio are located in the Gare Dalhousie, a historic building in the heart of Old-Montreal, departure station of the first train going from Montreal to Vancouver in 1886. In order to maintain this site as a place for dialogue and encounters for the circus community, Cirque Éloize invites up-and-coming artists to visit. Today, the company includes more than 100 individuals working in various teams and projects.

Their current show, iD consists of 14 artists on stage and 13 circus disciplines as well as urban dances such as breakdance and hip-hop. iD will be performed by Cirque Eloize at the Dubai World Trade Centre this August.
