What you get as a result, is a return to the turn-of-the-century circus with interesting twists. Think daredevil stunts and thrilling entertainment coupled with a spectacular set, costumes and music
A huge cast makes up the multicultural troupe, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more, Circus 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus, promises to take you back to the mesmerising golden age of circus.
Circus 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus brings elephants back to the ring. Before this alarms you, fear not. No real animals are used in the show, instead two realistic and stunningly beautiful elephants puppets; a mother and calf, come to life on the stage thanks to the same model makers who created the National Theatre’s War Horse
Circus 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus promises to wow audiences of all ages with ground breaking theatrics and puppetry unlike anything you have seen before.
Not only will you be wowed by the elephants, but you will enjoy the art of traditional circus performed by experts in the field from all over the world; a cycle artist from Germany; juggling from France; rola bola from Russia; hand to hand acrobatics from the Ukraine; an high wire act from Mexico; and a knife thrower from Brazil.
