Modern circus-arts performances preserve the wonder and awe of the big top while eliminating the inherent danger posed by rogue flying elephants. Escape the threat of airborne pachyderms with today's Groupon: for $21, you get one front-orchestra ticket to see Cirque Eloize at the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton on either Wednesday, February 9, or Thursday, February 10, 2011 at 7 p.m. (up to a $42 value). Quebec-based Cirque Eloize’s new production, iD, combines circus arts with dance to create an urban-surrealist work of fantasy and magic. Set in a futuristic city and combining more than a dozen circus disciplines, iD unites the world of circus performance with break-dance and hip-hop and incorporates acrobatic skills, electronic and poetic music, and visual imagery in an exploration of identity and anonymity. Shows are held in the McCarter Theatre Center’s 75-year-old Matthews Theatre, recently renovated to include handcrafted imported lighting fixtures, rich velvet-covered seats, and unsilenced-cell-phone-sniffing dogs.
