Daredevil Opera Company - Cirkus Inferno

Cirkus Inferno From Canada

"Cirkus Inferno juggles the pratfall comedy of a bygone era with gunpowder, fireworks and jets of flame: explosive and at the same time, wonderfully innocent fun. Unreservedly recommended." The Sydney Sun-Herald

The world’s most dangerous clowns!

An unsuspecting couple find themselves centre-ring in this side-splitting slapstick adventure. Mayhem and mishaps abound as this loveable pair of troublemakers finds their way into the circus props, getting themselves into ever more serious trouble and creating a fantastic mess in the process. Original music, pyrotechnic effects, outrageous props and unbelievable sight gags create an hilarious form of live action cartoon. Danger be damned! This is extreme situational comedy from the Daredevil Opera Company - thrill clowns and circus performers from Canada who tell poetic and pyrotechnic stories. Inspired by silent film, animation, vaudeville, circus and mythology, the Daredevil Opera Company has worked with Cirque du Soleil and Montreal's 'Just for Laughs', and has irresponsibly frightened festival audiences worldwide. Physical comedy at its most explosive, suitable for all ages.

Presented with the assistance of Foreign Affairs Canada.
