DEATH-DEFYING CIRCUS ROARS INTO HONG KONG FOR CHRISTMAS
Audiences in Hong Kong are set to experience circus at a whole new level this Christmas, when the heart-stopping show CIRQUE ADRENALINE roars into the Territory. Direct from a critically-acclaimed sell-out season at Sydney Opera House, CIRQUE ADRENALINE comes to AsiaWorld Expo for two weeks only from 22 December 2015. Tickets are on sale today for priority booking, with public sales commencing on 29th September 2015.
CIRQUE ADRENALINE is a jaw-clenching show featuring the world’s most dangerous and death-defying circus acts – guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping. A new genre of circus, it blends the traditional acts with the new; mixing clowns and trapeze artists with daredevil motorcyclists and complex aerial stunts.
CIRQUE ADRENALINE’s troupe of over 50 performers, including many former stars of Cirque du Soleil, is renowned worldwide for its theatrical flair and breath-taking acrobatic displays both on the ground and high above the stage. The stuntmen, trapeze artists, aerial performers, fire-breathers, strongmen, jugglers, acrobats and tumblers are at the peak of their prowess, handpicked from the best and most original circus acts in the world.
The 15 acts are choreographed at a brisk back-to-back pace: high-risk stunts are interspersed with clownish escapades and stunning acrobatic skills. Spectacularly staged, with dramatic lighting and music, this contemporary circus show has the audience gasping and laughing from start to finish.
Having thrilled audiences around the world – from the US, South Africa, the UK, Australia and beyond –CIRQUE ADRENALINE now makes its debut in Hong Kong over the Christmas season.
