Ac­ro­bats in Re­serve

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

The cir­cus has come to town with Zirka Cir­cus pitch­ing its tent at Taka­puwahia Re­serve.

The first show is to­mor­row and will fea­ture a three-storey ‘‘globe of death’’, a metal sphere en­cas­ing stunt mo­tor­bike rid­ers, which the cir­cus claims is the big­gest in the world.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Jeni Hou says au­di­ences will also be im­pressed by the ag­ile feats of an ac­ro­bat who is also a bal­let dancer, who per­forms on a man’s shoul­ders.

Zirka Cir­cus last vis­ited Porirua in 2011 and Hou says this is a com­pletely new show.

‘‘It’s a con­tem­po­rary show, very mod­ern . . . A high­light is the hip hop group jug­gling.’’

The cir­cus is in Porirua un­til Jan­uary 27.

Out on a limb: The art­ful ac­ro­bat­ics of Zirka Cir­cus re­turn to Porirua this week.
