Ooooh – now this looks epic…. Joburg Theatre is proud to present Cirque Infernal, direct from Europe, on the Mandela stage from September 6th to September 23rd 2018.
Inspired by Frederico Fellini, Wim Wenders and Tim Burton, Cirque Infernal offers non-stop captivating entertainment with astonishing and death defying acts.
Cirque Infernal was created by Danny Varanne – Danny was part of Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline which was presented at Joburg Theatre in 2012. He headlined the motorbike act; The Globe of Death, which left the audience in awe as they watched three bikers ride inside a globe of steel at speeds of up to 65km/h, all the while trying to avoid collision!
Born and raised in a traditional family of performers, Danny started as a showman in his parent’s burlesque theatre in France from an early age. Along with his brothers, Danny started a motorcycle daredevil show. They toured the world and became internationally acclaimed for their skills. In 2012, Danny received two awards at the prestigious Festival International Du Cirque De Monte-Carlo, and an official Guinness World Record!
“I am extremely excited to be returning to Joburg,” says Danny. “I have developed my appreciation for gothic and circus stories into Cirque Infernal, and I can’t wait for South African audiences to witness this breath-taking production. The show features two world firsts and thrilling jaw droppers, as well as moments of pure poetry.”
Cirque Infernal features some of the world’s top circus performers from trapeze artists, to tightrope walkers, Sufi dancers, knife throwers, wheel of death, contortionists and more. Be prepared to be on the edge of your seat – this looks amazing!
