Dare­devil mo­tor­cy­cle cage rid­ers, breath­tak­ing aerial per­form­ers and, of course, clowns are set to en­ter­tain un­der the big top in Bun­bury.

The Great Moscow Cir­cus rolled into the city this week with the open­ing show tonight.

Cir­cus team mem­ber Kathy We­ber said au­di­ences could ex­pect non-stop and spine tin­gling thrills.

“We’ve got great acts from over­seas and lo­cally,” Mrs We­ber said.

“We’ve got the Globe of Death, the mo­tor­bikes, our Flair rid­ers – he does back som­er­saults and ev­ery­thing in there. We’ve got aerial acts, trapeze, silks, we’ve got our Rus­sian troupes in there, they do tram­po­line and a big swing act, we’ve got clowns, hula-hoop, re­ally we’ve got ev­ery­thing.”

The cir­cus will be in Bun­bury un­til Septem­ber 24 with 14 shows.

Mrs We­ber de­scribed the cir­cus as pro­fes­sional with a fo­cus on not us­ing any an­i­mals in the show.

“There’s about 50 of us all to­gether trav­el­ling, so there’s quite a few of us and it’s a good team, we’re like one big fam­ily,” she said.

Among the show’s team is its youngest mem­ber and Flair rider Cruz We­ber, 4, and sev­enth gen­er­a­tion cir­cus per­form­ers in the aerial acts. For book­ings, con­tact 0497 667 269.
