Cirque Berserk!

Real Circus made for theatre

Britain’s biggest theatre circus spectacular returns by popular demand, when ZipposCircus present Cirque Berserk! at Northampton’s Royal & Derngate from Wednesday 27 to Sunday 31 March.

Combining beautiful contemporary circus artistry with hair-raising, death-defying stunts, all designed specially for staging in a proscenium arch theatre, the show thrills audiences aged young and old!

This year’s Cirque Berserk! sees the return of its most famous – and most dangerous – act, the legendary ‘Globe of Death’, in which five motorcyclists defy gravity and risk life and limb traversing the inside of a spherical steel cage at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

This astoundingly talented international troupe includes over thirty jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen showcasing the finest in traditional circus thrills and skills, from all corners of the globe. The show also features the brilliant physical comedy star (and Brazilian ‘capoeira’ champion) Paulo Dos Santos.

Cirque Berserk! takes to the Derngate stage at 7.30pm from Wednesday 27 to Friday 29 March, and at 2pm, 5pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 30 March, with a final performance at 3pm on Sunday 31 March. Tickets – priced from £11* – can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or online at The show is recommended for audiences aged 6 and upwards.
