Zippos Circus is delighted to announce that the newest version of Cirque Berserk! the UK’s biggest and boldest theatre-circus spectacular, is returning to Theatre Royal Plymouth as part of a new National tour from Tuesday 14 to Sunday 19 May.

Combining beautiful contemporary circus artistry with hair-raising, death-defying stunts, all designed especially for staging in a proscenium arch theatre, the show thrills audiences from 5 to 95!

This year’s Cirque Berserk! sees the return of its most famous – and most dangerous – act, the legendary ‘Globe of Death’, in which four motorcyclists defy gravity and risk life and limb traversing the inside of a spherical steel cage at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

They’re joined by a magnificent troupe of artists from all around the world including foot jugglers, Kenyan tumblers, Cuban Springboard acrobats, knife throwers, contortionists and dancers. 

The show features Paulo Dos Santos, brilliant 3ft 6in (107 cm) human dynamo from Brazil , acrobat, physical-comedy performer, one-time star of the famous Ringling Brothers’ Barnum & Bailey Circus,  and his country’s national ‘capoeira’ martial arts champion!

Tickets are priced from £15 and can be booked online at www.theatreroyal.com or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222. Concessions are available.
