Sun International’s Carousel Casino has teamed up with makers of the acclaimed Great Moscow Circus and Great Euro Circusin Australia to bring AUSSIE: The Australian Circus Spectacularto South Africa this year. The Carousel provides the stage for the talented, daring and slightly insane AUSSIE performers who will dazzle local audiences with their unbelievable feats from 21 April to 1 May 2016.
AUSSIE: The Australian CircusSpectacular is a modern and exclusively human, feel-good circus spectacular that blends stunning cirque style acrobatics, hilarious vaudevillian antics and extreme, high octane stunts. The Executive Producer of the show is Cape Town-born Sebastian Cassie.
This is the first time that AUSSIE: The Australian CircusSpectacularhas visited foreign soil, and it promises to leave audiences in awe with the cast performing unbelievable feats. Highlights of the show include one of the world’s few surviving human cannonball acts performed by expert stuntman, Luiz Daza, who has literally flown over audiences seven days a week during the sell-out run of the Great Euro Circus in Australia.
World-class family entertainment that will have South Africans on the edge of their seats
Audiences will also marvel at the dizzying Globe of Death act which features up to five motorbike riders circling a daring dancer with Mad Max style bravado before the sphere splits in half. Thrilling freestyle motor cross riders then jump the Globe beneath Big Top, reaching gut-wrenching heights.
Between these breathtaking and death-defying stunts, a troupe of talented and equally daring AUSSIES will perform amazing feats of human endurance, skill and strength. From the Queen of the Silks, Kiarnna; vaudevillian performer and slapstick comedian, Val De Fun; the illusion of the salsa-dancing quick-change act; to the duo pole performance by Edison and Giselle - audiences will be mesmerized from start to finish.
“AUSSIE: The Australian Circus Spectacular is world-class family entertainment that will have South Africans on the edge of their seats. We are excited to bring the show to our region this Autumn,” says Rosa Naudé-Potgieter, PR & Promotions Manager at The Carousel.
