The Circus is in Town

Contortionist acrobat

Moscow Circus…An extreme show. Featuring Australia’s top trial riders, “The Flair Riders”. Extreme High Wire and the worlds best dare devil motorcycle Cage Riders. Breath-taking Aerial performances and much much more. A circus not to be missed.

Russian Circus traditions include clowning, juggling, acrobatics, contortion, and animal acts with six tiny ponies. The show lived up to its advertising with an everchanging, fast moving selection of acts that effortlessly rolled on one after the other delighting the audience who were excited and responsive to the lively performers as they moved in the tiny arena and out interacting with the audience. The lighting was amazing and changed and highlighted the acts creating drama and following the performance.

Everybody loves a clown and this mock Charlie Chaplain type figure hobbled along silently interacting with members of the audience as he orchestrated his simple dramas in a very visual and tantalising way, leading the audience into responding with hoots of laughter and great enjoyment. I laughed so much I forgot to take photos as he manipulated those he selected from the audience and had them relaxed enough to perform beside him. He was excellent and memorable.

No wild animals perform in circuses anymore; domesticated animals, yes. To that end, Moscow Circus has a team of tiny, tiny horses which trot around this way and that and look adorable.    Ongoing acts are programmed seamlessly. The show moves swiftly, never dull.  The motorcycle Cage of Death is the climactic event. It is loud and fast, daredevil dangerous and as good as it gets.  https://www.thebarefootreview.com.au/menu/theatre/119-2014-adelaide-reviews/1728-the-great-moscow-circus.html

The trampoline acrobats are a highlight of this circus.  The trampoline is beside big wall with open doorways. The acrobats are dressed up like graffiti artists. The music is hip hop. They bounce and somersault higher and higher, in and out of the doors, up and down, faster and faster, clever, funny, inventive and utterly expert.

The final curtain raiser was the dramatic Motor Cycle Dare Devils riding the Globe and to my delight Diego, who I met when I was working at Hudson’s Circus, was one of the riders and I went to take his photo, and they took a photo of me inside the Cage instead. This is a scary and hell raising event, especially when they had 3 motorcycles flashing around this very small globe .It began with an amazing fire Dance bringing in the globe

The show ended after this drama, with a line-up of all the performers that extended to a line up outside the tent as we were leaving, so we could say thank-you to the artists for their amazing show, and it was an amazing show.
