All aboard! Next stop: the circus


Dalhousie station gives Cirque Éloize a warm welcome. 

Cirque Éloize has been hard at work upgrading this heritage train station. Built in 1883, the first ever train from Montréal to Vancouver left its platform in 1889. A new costume studio, additional administrative offices, and new technical equipment are all part of the upgrade. 

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. It expresses its innovative nature by combining circus arts with music, dance and theatre in a new way. With 10 original productions to its credit, Cirque Éloize has presented almost 4,000 performances in over 440 cities and 40 countries.

Riding high on its international success, Cirque Éloize will present the world premiere of Monaco The Show in fall 2015 in Paris. This large-scale contemporary show will combine some thirty acrobats and dancers in a lavish setting for a spectacular journey through the most beautiful symbols of Monaco. After the premiere, the show will tour major French and European cities.
