Things to do on September 23:

Watch this: Cirque Éloize’s acclaimed Cirkopolis arrives at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Wednesday September 23 for four nights of story-driven performances. Contortionists, jugglers and aerial artists combine circus arts with music, dance and theatre in a stern, robotic set among giant gears and dark portals, symbolising how a mechanism can crush individuality. Ten acrobats and multidisciplinary artists rebel against monotony to an original musical score, inventive video projections and bursts of colour.

Buy this: Find fine produce at Blue Orange’s new weekly artisan market, where the chefs will also share cooking tips and recipes, as well as prepare dinner dishes for you.
