New production images have been released ahead of the show’s return to the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.
Following a successful run at the Royal Festival Hall last year, Circus 1903 is set to return to the venue from the 19th December until the 5th January. It will arrive in London following a tour to Birmingham Hippodrome, The Lowry, Salford and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin.
The new acts joining the show for this year’s London run 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).
Meanwhile, other acts involved with the show include 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 Leonardo Louzada de Freitas). Dizzying Mongolian duo Ganbayar Munkhbat and Andryei Batbold will bring their Icarian Games act and the Russian Cradle will feature performances from ‘Les Incredibles’ (Ivan Fomichev and Maria Boldyreva).
The production also features Queenie and Peanut, the Circus 1903 elephants, including Mikey Brett (Peanut), Nyron Levy, Chris Milford, James Donovan (Queenie), Amelie Leroy (Elephant Trainer) and Will Palmer (swing).
