Combining Russia’s finest circus traditions with all the skills and daring of today’s new age circus heroes, ZIRK! Circus – The Big Top Spectacular is coming to Australia for the first time.
ZIRK! Circus which features eighteen acts from an international ensemble will premiere in Sydney in July before heading to Northshore Hamilton in Brisbane from 7th August (tickets on sale Wednesday 5 June). ZIRK! will be performed in a new Big Top where no audience member is more than 11 metres from the action.
Theatre Tours International, in association with the Russian State Circus Company and Moscow’s Nikulin Circus are bringing the new global experience, which has been thrilling audiences and critics alike in South Africa and Singapore, to Australia.
“The circus is a two hour spectacular show the children will never forget, and a show that adults could only dream of,” said producer Andrew Guild, who has a 50-year association with Russian circus and spent eight-months combing the world seeking-out and signing-up the best acts on the international circus circuit.
The best Russian acts are joined by circus stars from Cuba, Canada, the USA, Colombia and even a contortionist from Dagestan. A trampolinist, a double, double wheel, a Russian master clown, a motorbike globe with a record-breaking seven riders hurtling around, a Ringmaster who’s starred with America’s Ringling Brother Circus, and many more combine in ZIRK! Circus.
Principal artists have featured in Cirque du Soleil, The Russian State Circus, Swiss National Circus and Europe’s top shows such as Circus Roncalli, Germany’s famed Krone and the cutting edge Flic Flac – fast-paced and family-friendly. Headed by the Master Russian Clown, Dmitry Shindrov and presided over by Ringmaster, Stas Knyazkov, ZIRK! Circus is an adrenaline-charged, entertainment troupe with a depth of collective talent.
