The 250th anniversary of circus is being celebrated with a high energy and thrilling show which is making its Norwich Theatre Royal return.
Cirque Berserk aims to bring Big Top thrills and spills bang up to date and transfer the action and excitement into an auditorium.
Running from April 5-7, it will combine contemporary cirque-style flair with some adrenalin-fuelled stunt action.
Cirque Berserk also boasts an international troupe of performers including jugglers, acrobats, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen, as well as the world-renowned finale of the motorcycle Globe Of Death.
The team behind the show say it aims to bring the traditions of circus to life in an edgier manner but it is also specifically designed to be showcased around the proscenium arch design of a theatre.
It also recruits West End-standard lighting and sound designers to enhance the stunning thrills and spills.
John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, says it has a number of inspirations. He said: “The creative team have looked to the Cirque du Soleil style to give it an almost balletic feel in places and this is then mixed with a very urban feel too.
“Overall it is all about entertainment and the Cirque Berserk team are aiming to guarantee that during their Easter holiday visit to the city.”
