—The Globe and Mail, Canada
Cirque Éloize is one of Canada's national treasures.
Enter the elegant and stylish Art Deco lobby of Cirque Éloize's newest show, Hotel, and you'll meet a cast of captivating characters, from a juggling janitor to a hapless tightrope-walking bellhop to a starlet flying through the air on a trapeze swing. Make your way to the front desk, which stretches across the entire stage; but be careful—there's a gravity-defying hula hoop act to your right, and a guest spinning in an enormous steel ring to your left! A pioneer of contemporary circus arts, "Cirque du Soleil's hipper, sexier cousin" (The Stage, London) delivers uproarious comedy through a mix of acrobatics, aerial routines, and live music, in a show about the unexpected encounters that fuel every memorable traveler's tale.
Approximate run time of this performance is 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission
