Imagine a fangtastic Rock Show with amazing light effects and set combined with an amalgamation of bizarre, dare devil and astounding Circus acts, accompanied by a rock'n'roll soundscape of mainly original songs and 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.
The infamous Circus of Horrors and is touring throughout the world, featuring unbelievable sword swallowers, hairculian women swinging around the auditorium from her hair, demon dwarfs, strong man, whirlwind acrobats, flaming limbo, sensational aerialists, knife throwing, cross & long bow wielding Bond like Diva's, twisted contortion and lots, lots more in this roller coaster of a show that is now celebrating 24 years on the road.
