Zippos Cirque Berserk! at the Peacock Theatre
News emerges from the Peacock Theatre today indicating a circus-level treat for fans of the Sadler’s Wells venue. From February 2016 audiences headed to the Holborn location will witness Zippos Cirque Berserk, which will showcase the talents of more than 30 performers.
The show emerges in the month following next year’s London International Mime Festival, which brings shows like Infinita and Horror to the venue in January. So it will be a busy period for the theatre, which is the West End outlet for the Islington venue Sadler’s Wells.
The show will see dancers, jugglers, clowns (including Tweedy), stunt-men, acrobats and aerialists, amongst others, take to the stage to perform what has been described as “edge-of-the-seat theatre” in its press release. It will also feature motorcyclists performing in the Globe of Terror, a steel cage, which will see them reach high speeds in the enclosed environment.
The show is choreographed by Dede McGarrity, a performer who has appeared on stages around the world, from the UK to the US, and has also worked as a teacher. She is best known for her Zumba work, which has seen her perform and train in the form.
With Zippos Cirque Berserk she works with creative director Julius Green, plus producer Martin Burton and more. Together they create a show that has already wowed audiences at locations across the United Kingdom.
And now it comes to the Peacock Theatre. The venue is located in London’s West End and offers a way for audiences in Theatreland to witness some of the biggest names in dance, with Matthew Bourne and more offering some popular shows at the venue over the years. It is run by Sadler’s Wells, which also runs its main stage in Islington, and presents many well known performers in 2016. As well as the mentioned Infinita by Familie Flöz and Horror by the Ahlborn Company, 2016 also sees the arrival of The Merchants of Bollywood and Immortal Tango, plus many others.
Zippos Cirque Berserk makes its anticipated appearance at the Peacock Theatre from Monday 8th February 2016 to Wednesday 24th February 2016.
