Cirque preps ‘Iris’ for fall

Show sets permanent residency at Kodak

Cirque du Soleil is on its way to becoming an Angeleno.

After nine touring Cirque shows have played Los Angeles since 1987, the company will introduce its latest production, “Iris,” with a permanent residency at Hollywood’s Kodak Theater this fall.

The show presents Cirque du Soleil’s interpretation of the “real, true history of cinema,” with the high-flying acrobatics, lavish costumes and artistic storylines that are synonymous with the Cirque.

Written and directed by Philippe Decoufle and with music by Danny Elfman, the production and set design are reminiscent of early 20th-century circuses and explore the illusory nature of the world of cinema.

The production will not interfere with the Academy Awards.

Iris” will premiere Sept. 25 at the Kodak, with preview performances beginning July 21.

Sun Life Financial sponsors, and will award grants to students and charitable orgs in the fall.
