The full jaw-dropping line up of outstanding acts has been announced for when Circus 1903 visits Birmingham Hippodrome.
A range of dazzling new acts from around the globe will transport audiences back to the wonders of the Golden Age of Circus. Undoubtedly the most charming puppet elephants on any stage around the world, Queenie and Peanut take to the stage alongside Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade (David Williamson).
Acts joining the Circus 1903 family include a daring duo aerial act ‘The Flying Fredonis’ performed by Russian artists Dasha Shelest and Vadym Pankevych, Cuban hand balancer ‘The Great Rokardy’ (Rokardy Rodriguez) and the furious flexible feats of Russian Rolling Ball Hula Hoopist ‘Mademoiselle Natalia’ (Natalia Leontieva).
These new acts join the mind-bending juggler, ‘The Great Gaston’ (François Borie), the legendary balancing act Rola Bola by ‘The Sensational Sozonov’ (Russian Mikhail Sozonov and Ukrainian Ievgeniia Fetkulova), unrivalled Ethiopian contortionist, ‘The Elastic Dislocationist’ (Senayet Asefa Amare) and the stomach churning heights of ‘The Daring Desafios’ (trio of Brazilian teeterboard daredevils João Guilherme de Lima Siqueira, Luan de Souza Vieira and Clóvis Hernan Aranguiz dos Santos). Dizzying Mongolian duo Ganbayar Munkhbat and Andryei Batbold will bring their Icarian Games act and the Russian Cradle will feature breathtaking performances from ‘Les Incredibles’ (Ivan Formichev and Maria Boldyreva). A crack team of UK-based puppeteers will work with much-loved Queenie and Peanut, the Circus 1903 elephants.
Circus 1903 rolls in to Birmingham Hippodrome from Friday 25 October – Saturday 2 November. For more information and to book tickets click here.
