"Nomade -- At Night, the Sky is Endless" to open International Arts
Carnival
********************************************************************


A treat for the senses! "Nomade -- At Night, the Sky is Endless", the latest creation of Cirque Eloize, invites you to a surreal journey along the highways and byways of their imagination.

Running from July 8 to 10 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Asia premiere of "Nomade" opens this summer's "International Arts Carnival" (IAC) presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The Journal de Montreal acclaimed "Nomade" as: "Exceptional and awesome! A dream world where sensuality, tenderness, humour and yes, emotion blend perfectly with acrobatics, daring and surprises."

Inspired by the wandering spirit and traditional folklore of the gypsies, "Nomade" is a nighttime carnival filled with a unique blend of acrobatics, aerialists, comic timing and infectious music. The journey begins at dusk and ends at dawn because at nighttime, the sky shines with endless possibilities. This treat for the senses features a cast of colourful characters and spotlights the amazing virtuosity of circus artists in peak form.

The circus performers of Cirque Eloize are modern-day nomads as they wander the globe. The troupe has performed for more than two million spectators in more than 200 cities and 20 countries.

Cirque Eloize, since its inception in 1993, has been a leading force in Quebec's thriving "Cirque Nouveau" movement that focused on innovation and imagination. This troupe of skilled acrobats and athletic dancers perform a magical brand of circus artistry that draws on the big-top tradition - and yet is entirely original.

"Nomade" will be performed at 7.30pm on July 8 and 9; and at 3pm on July 9 and 10 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Grand Theatre.

Tickets priced at $120, $180, $250 and $320 are available at URBTIX outlets. Half-price tickets are available for full-time students, senior citizens, people with disabilities and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients. Package booking discounts are up to 15% for full-price tickets.
