Circus Extreme – from the producers of The Moscow State Circus comes a new death-defying and extreme circus descends on Dublin as part of its European Tour. A one-of-a-kind performance that has been five years in the making and features some of the most talented performers in the world!
Merging modern and contemporary styles with extreme stunts and classic clown escapades, audiences will be amazed by the jam-packed Circus Extreme, featuring show-stopping performances that will have you on the edge of your seat, when not falling off it with laughter. Acts include the Danguir Troupe, who will be performing a high wire and double wheel of death stunt. Leader of the troupe, Mustafa Danger, is flying in from Africa for the performance having performed all over the world and most recently as one of the stars of the famous Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey in the USA.
Just back from its European tour, the EXTREME® FMX team will be bring its jaw-dropping stunts to the Big Top as their pilots fly through the air displaying cliff-hanger stunts such as the Superman, Seat-Grab and Nac Nac, to name a few. Battling for air space, our resident riders are sure to get the adrenaline pumping as they defy gravity with incredible mid-air backflips. The Extreme stunt riding team will also perform the Globe of Death – the most death-defying act ever demonstrated! This incredible stunt will put the performers under G-forces similar to that of a fighter pilot. Watch as they loop vertically and horizontally all while encased in a mesh sphere. This really is one for the petrol-heads!
Henry the World Famous Prince of Clowns, a legendary figure in the circus, will be keeping the audience amused throughout the show.
British legend, Laura Miller, will be showcasing her internationally-renowned aquatic aerial ring which unites the elements of fire, water and air. Witness the aerial hoop skills combining grace, beauty, visually stunning lights and music that will transports audiences into a sci-fi world.
On top of this there'll be the Cloud Swing flying Trapeze, whirl wind Jugglers and lots lots more, all performing unique acts with spectacular twists, many of which have never before been seen in Ireland, and joined by the Circus Extreme troupe of dancers.
The show will be housed in Ireland's largest state of the art, climate controlled Circus Big Top. This really is an event with something for everyone – if you're a petrol-head, theatre-goer, thrill-seeker or simply want to see one of the greatest shows of its time, make sure you get your tickets fast!
