Imagine a fangtastic Rock Show with amazing light effects & set combined with an amalgamation of bizarre, daredevil & astounding Circus acts, accompanied by a rock n roll soundscape of mainly original songs & performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek.
If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Due Soleil then you would be only half way there.
Circus of Horrors is touring throughout the world with a brand new show, featuring unbelievable sword swallowers, hairculian women swinging around the auditorium from her hair, demon dwarfs, strong man, whirlwind acrobats, flaming limbo, sensational sinister aerialists, knife throwing, cross & long bow wielding Bond like Diva’s, twisted contortion & lots, lots more in this rock & roller coaster of a show that is now celebrating 24 years on the road, and all performed to a live rock soundscape
