This summer, the Montreal-based entertainment behemoth will be launching a planned 10-year residence at the Kodak Theater – home to the Oscar ceremony – where a posse of 75 acrobats, aerialists and clowns will perform Cirque’s latest big-top extravaganza, the movie-themed “Iris.”
French choreographer Philippe Decouflé, head of the Paris-based contemporary dance company DCA (Découflé Company of Arts), has conceived and directs the $100 million show. Music is by Danny Elfman, Tim Burton’s composer of choice.
Preview performances begin July 21, with the official opening set for September 25.
