In association with the Russian State Circus Company and Moscow’s Nikulin Circus, Australian producers, Andrew Guild and Simon Bryce (Theatre Tours International), are delighted to present in Australia ZIRK! – Russia’s Big Top Circus Spectacular, a brand-new global experience which thrilled audiences in South Africa and Singapore, and had critics raving.
Producer Andrew Guild 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.
Andrew said: “This is the best circus program we’ve ever put together. I’m delighted to say we are bringing to Australia the crème de la crème of international circus performers. We wanted to create something that highlighted the best of Russia’s 140-year circus traditions and marry those with the expectations of a 21st century audience. It’s fast paced, family friendly and includes some of the most electrifying acts you will see under the Big Top Chapiteau. For children it is a show they will never forget … even more so for adults!”
ZIRK! – Russia’s Big Top Circus Spectacular combines the thrills and fun of the circus of yesteryear with all the skills and daring of today’s new age circus heroes. The Big Top Chapiteau tour will commence on 14 June 2019 in Canberra at Majura Park Showgrounds followed by a Sydney season at The Showring, the Entertainment Quarter on 5 July 2019 with other cities to be announced soon.
