The critics RAVE about Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline:
“The best of what the old circus had to offer. Remixed, of course, for a modern audience...with enough of the wow factor to keep you talking about it for years to come” - Paul Eksteen, Star Tonight
“This high-quality production with its razor sharp energy, its infectious adrenaline injection and distinctive stylish acts will leave you speechless...The performers defy gravity and human limitations...acts so daring, it defies description...incredible and mind-blowing expertise...You will not believe your eyes...the most breathtaking and marvellous evening I’ve spent at Joburg Theatre” - Leon van Nierop, artslink.co.za
“Pure razzamatazz and sensory overload...I’m thrilled by the glitz and glamour and the exhilarating insanity of it all...I loved seeing so many children in the audience too - it’s a great way of showing them that in human endeavour, there are no limits” - Lesley Stones, artslink.co.za
“This circus pumps out the adrenaline like nothing I’ve seen before...a show that will take your breath away. It’s a brilliant mix of skill, creativity, gymnastic dexterity and physical comedy and it had its opening night audience enthralled...There are moments when you truly have your heart in your mouth...a terrific night out” - Peter Feldman, artslink.co.za
Witness the nail-biting Globe of Death performed by the French and Columbian team and directed by Danny Varanne. Three extreme athletes ride upside down on motorbikes and at speeds in excess of 65km an hour inside of a 16-feet steel Globe cage. The Globe of Death is one of the most thrilling acts ever performed and its danger cannot be understated.
Marvel as identical twins bend their bodies in incredible feats of physical plasticity in Barrel Contortion.
Gasp as one of the world's greatest aerial artists, Russia's Petru Vasiachi, shows off his amazing strength and agility in Extreme Aerial Straps.
And of course no adrenaline-based show would be complete without the perilous and heart-pounding Wheel of Destiny: The most dangerous act ever to be performed in the world and now for the first time on a theatre stage! The version in Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline is a 35-feet high steel pendulum with two cages at either end and is performed by two of the best Brazilian circus artists in the world, Martin and Visan Espana. With no safety wires, crash mats or other safety apparatus, the Espanas will perform on the inside and outside of the wheel - even with blind folds and a skipping rope!
