Marvel at Moscow cir­cus

Southern Telegraph - - News - Kate Field­ing

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

The Great Moscow Cir­cus rolls into town on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 11, with the open­ing show at 7.30pm.

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 Bal­divis un­til Oc­to­ber 21 with 12 shows.

Mrs We­ber said the cir­cus was pro­fes­sional, with a fo­cus on not us­ing any an­i­mals. Among the show’s team is its youngest mem­ber and Flair rider Cruz We­ber, 4, and sev­enth-gen­er­a­tion cir­cus per­form­ers in the aerial acts.
