WATER CIRCUS SET TO MAKE A SPLASH THIS AUGUST
The South African tour of SPLASH! – The Water Circus launches in The Globe at Silverstar Casino for a short season from August 19 – September 17, before touring across the country until the New Year.
SPLASH! – The Water Circus is a circus for the modern-age, presenting a variety of all circus genres, but with a unique, visual twist. The traditional acts look completely different as they are presented in – or above – a 12-metre diameter pool of water. Accompanying this is a dazzling lighting and laser show which perfectly displays the impressive body manipulation and contortion feats amongst a series of water fountains.
Onlookers will gasp as they watch traditional aerial circus acts such as the spectacular Silks all take place above water. Added to the already impressive list of circus acts is the Brazilian Espana family performing their daredevil Wheel of Death and The Russian Swing.
“We have selected the best acts to tour South Africa,” states Weber, “and added some extreme acts which we know the South African audiences will love. The show along with all the technical and artistic elements which we have incorporated is what will make SPLASH! a huge success.”
– Co-owner of Weber Brothers Entertainment, Harry Weber
On April 17, 1998, the first Russian Water Circus was performed under the name ‘Circus on Water’. Since then, the creative team has continually developed new acts and shows which captivate and enthral families across the world. Over the past 19 years, the ‘Circus on Water’ team has toured Russia, Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Israel, Oman, Lithuania, UAE and China.
The show has not toured internationally since a major renovation in 2013 which piqued the interest of international producer Harry Weber and local producer Matthew Cook.
In addition to all the circus acts which viewers are accustomed to seeing, the show also has a full team of synchronized swimmers who add to the magic of the performance. Their disciplined and well trained displays are one of the reasons why the show is considered to be so unique.
This circus is totally free of animals and showcases the extreme talent and capabilities of the human body in an action-packed show presented around the custom-built pool ensuring a truly memorable audience experience. Audiences will be spellbound by the refreshing SPLASH! – THE WATER CIRCUS on its first visit to South Africa, direct from Russia.
Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 11am, 3pm and 7pm, Sundays at 11am and 3pm. Ticket prices range from R100 – R375 and bookings are through Computicket at www.computicket.com or by calling 0861 915 8000.
The show runs 2 hours 10 minutes including a 20-minute interval. No children under 2 will be allowed into the auditorium and most especially no babes in arms.
