Cirque Éloize in Cirkopolis

Cirkopolis, the newest creation from Montreal’s Cirque Éloize, dives into a vibrant imaginary world and pushes the boundaries of visual and audio innovation through different forms of projections. Circus, dance, music and theater meet in an urban landscape of the imagination at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, in Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium on the University Park campus.

The classic films "Metropolis" and "Brazil" inspired the unique imagery that takes audiences into this industrial yet fanciful sculptural city. The 12 performers -- and audiences of all ages -- shift between dream and reality in an uninterrupted stream of acrobatics, music and dazzling images.

Tickets for the Center for the Performing Arts presentation are $42 for an adult, $15 for a University Park student and $24 for a person 18 and younger. Buy tickets online at or by phone at 814-863-0255. Outside the local calling area, dial 1-800-ARTS-TIX. Tickets are also available at four State College locations: Eisenhower Auditorium (weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Penn State Downtown Theatre Center (weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), HUB-Robeson Center Information Desk (weekdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Bryce Jordan Center (weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
