BOBINO in Paris with their exquisite and hilarious circus production, The Elephant in the Room.ollowing a 3 month run in the autumn of 2016,Cirque le Roux returns to
The production continues to tour non-stop throughout Europe and, following their North American Premiere at Montréal Complètement Cirque in 2016, will return in October / November 2018 for performances during CINARS in Montreal and for their first tour of Canada and the USA.
Cirque le Roux installs a monochrome room in a universe of intrigues, where four characters try to protect a secret culprit: “The Elephant in the Room”. Deliciously retro and absolutely original Cirque le Roux delves into the smokey monochrome world of circus arts, Hollywood film noir and physical theatre.The Elephant in the Room serves up a dose of wit and eccentricity, seamlessly blending storytelling with high-level acrobatics. The four artists perfect everything from costumes to set design, perilous circus numbers to the mysteries of love, friendship and the obvious truths we choose to ignore.
The production was a sold-out hit at UNDERBELLY during the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe and recently completed a 5 month run at BOBINO in Paris. The company is presently touring throughout Europe so check their schedule and catch a performance.
