About this event
This unique extravaganza showcases only the best in entertainment; witness acrobats defying gravity as the ancient discipline Icarian Games returns to centre stage. An act rarely seen in circus arts, steeped in tradition, this remarkable display of human juggling where the human body becomes catapult and catcher in an elaborate, explosive and highly choreographed presentation of power, poise and agility.
The show features traditional Chinese acts with the amazing legendary Bicycle Act which will keep the audience on the edge of their seats as 12 artistes manoeuvre onto a single bicycle. Witness the unpredictable and exhilarating twists of foot juggling with drums, the famous swinging poles, the sensational contortionist and the dynamic hoop divers with their amazing somersaults, leaps and jumps which all go towards completing this action packed programme.
Suitable for an audience of all ages, with evocative sets, soaring musical score and extravagant new costumes this will entertain the entire family long after the final curtain falls! Don't miss this stunning production that features the most daring, breath-taking and thrilling artistes to tour the UK.
An amazing collection of performers. From the Cavalcade of Kung Fu, to aerial bungee trapeze artists, back-flipping acrobats, knotted contortionists, spiralling gymnasts, plate-balancing unicyclists and incredible pole jumpers. A truly breathtaking ensemble.
'The most exhilarating circus it has been my privilege to see' (London Evening Standard).
