Circus Of The Orient

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

Up for a swinging time? Led by Chinese pole-jumping ‘Trio Serik’, ‘Circus of the Orient’ springs into action from the start. This big-top stage production combines acrobatics, clowning antics and audience participation, making it certainly one for children, but also for adults who secretly delight at the thought of a trapeze act. Triple somersaults, trampoline routines and kung fu mastery mesmerise the audience and make time itself fly by. Keep an eye out for the springboard style of Julio Troupe, the aerial grace of Monalisa and the unbelievable Shaolin Warriors. And with plenty of clowning around – literally – from ‘Duo Delbosq’, there is something for everyone in this family friendly show. A real, traditional circus experience.

Meadows Theatre Big Top, 6 – 14 Aug, times vary, £12.00 – £16.00, fpp250.
