Grand Opera House York

Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 February 2015

Direct from four sold-out seasons in London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, Britain’s favourite circus embarks at last on a  nationwide theatre tour.

Combining contemporary “cirque” style skills with off-the-scale thrilling stunt action, Cirque Berserk is a danger-filled spectacle that will amaze audiences of all ages.

Presenting the world’s most dangerous circus act, the legendary Globe of Death, with 3 motorcyclists speeding at over 60mph inside a unique steel cage which splits open as they ride, seen for the first time live on stage in the UK (“off the scale awesome” – Daily Telegraph).

Plus a troupe of over thirty jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, musicians and death-defying stunt men are joined by award-winning physical comedian Tweedy (“The best Clown I have ever seen” – The Guardian).
