When I was a child I have always dreamed of joining the circus, but alas, it remained a dream that will never be realized, as I have no performing talents whatsoever. Lucky for me though, I chanced upon a piece of news saying that there will be circus performance in town soon and it’ll probably be the closest thing that will ever be for me to realize my dream of getting close to a circus troup.
Cré Arts Asia, Southeast Asia’s largest modern circus troupe, will be performing for the first time in Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) from 29 September to 1 October 2017.
The three-day performance dubbed Cré or ‘earth’ in Old Irish, promises spectacular displays of gravity-defying performances and extraordinary feats of the human body, all set within stunningly beautiful backdrops that are a mainstay of contemporary performing arts.
As its namesake suggest, Cré is primarily themed to showcase the beauty of Mother Earth, interpreting the natural elements of air, water, earth and fire through the use of the human body as a medium. Throughout the course of the show, the audience can look forward to breathtaking aerial acrobatics, contortions, mesmerising dance performances and much more.
Cré Arts Asia is a collaboration between two of Malaysia’s leading home-grown performing arts studios namely, Viva Circus, an award-winning physical arts theatre company; and Psycusix, Malaysia’s leading modern and contemporary circus performing group.
Chris Lo, Event Director of Creative Events Solution Sdn Bhd, the organiser of Cré, said, “The talents that are on display at Cré are truly world-class. In fact, some the performers featured have won several international accolades and have performed at renowned venues across the world.”
“The experience and expertise of Viva Circus and Psycusix in putting up a quality performance that come with both the thrills and the depth in story-telling is also second to none. With both physical arts powerhouses coming together, Cré is indeed a must-not-miss experience that is suitable for all. Families, especially those with young kids, will find the show highly entertaining and meaningful,” he added.
Cre Arts Asia will be donating part of the proceeds from ticket sales to International Medical University Malaysia (IMU) Chariofare, the largest fundraising event at IMU.
Tickets for Cré are available for RM98 (Fire), RM128 (Water) and RM168 (Earth). Tickets for kids below 12 years of age are available for RM68 (Water & Earth Only). Fire seats are free-seating while Water & Earth seats are numbered.
Those who purchase their tickets early, from now until 14 September 2017, can enjoy the Early Bird Promo for only RM108 (Water) and RM148 (Earth).
A Special Package Promo is also available where the purchase of five (5) Earth tickets will be entitled to one (1) additional FREE Earth ticket.
