High-oc­tane stunts from Cirque Adren­a­line and chor­tles aplenty at the Ud­der­belly Fes­ti­val

A cir­cus on steroids.” That’s how crit­ics de­scribe the glo­be­trot­ting phe­nom­e­non that is Cirque Adren­a­line. A high­paced con­tem­po­rary take on the tra­di­tional arts of the big top, its troupe of more than 50 con­sum­mate per­form­ers de­liv­ers clas­sic clown and jug­gling acts along with the heart-stop­ping tension of aerial feats and death-de­fy­ing mo­tor­cy­cle stunts. One of the nail-bit­ing high­lights in­volves a large ro­tat­ing ap­pa­ra­tus aptly named the Wheel of Death on which dare­devil ac­ro­bats ex­e­cute per­fectly syn­chro­nised moves. But it’s not all about hold­ing your breath—a lib­eral scat­ter­ing of com­edy leav­ens the adren­a­line-charged mix with plenty of laugh­ter.
