Boasting the world’s most dangerous and death-defying acts, Cirque Adrenaline will transform Arts Centre Melbourne’s State Theatre into a spectacular, high octane circus arena from 1 April 2016 – guaranteeing to pump a million gallons of adrenaline at every performance!
Created by the producers of The Illusionists and Le Noir, Cirque Adrenaline’s troupe of over 30 performers, many either former national aerobatic champions or stars of Cirque du Soleil, are renowned worldwide for their theatrical flair and breath-taking acrobatic displays both on the ground and high above the stage.
Each performer has been handpicked from among the best circus entertainers around the world, including Russia, China, South America, Africa and Europe, creating a new genre of show that blends traditional circus acts with the new guaranteeing to keep the whole family on the edge of their seats.
Acts include clowns and hair-raising fire acts, dare devil motorcyclists who narrowly miss each other in the Sphere of Fear, Wheel of Death performances, trapeze artists, high bars and aerial silk, plus a whole host of others all promising danger and excitement.
Producer Simon Painter, who is no stranger to producing heart-pounding shows, says Cirque Adrenaline does not stop to draw breath. “Imagine if you took all the finales from the greatest circus and acrobatic spectaculars from around the world and then brought them together into one extravaganza – that is Cirque Adrenaline,” says Painter.
“Witnessing the world’s highest, fastest and most dangerous acts in the spectacular setting of the State Theatre will be a truly breathtaking experience.”
