On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Danny Varanne about Cirque Infernal coming to Joburg Theatre in September.
Cirque Infernal is inspired by Federico Fellini, Wim Wenders and Tim Burton, and offers non-stop captivating entertainment with astonishing and death-defying acts. The show was created by Danny Varanne, who was part of Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline which was presented at Joburg Theatre in 2012. He headlined the motorbike act; The Globe of Death, which left the audience in awe as they watched three bikers ride inside a globe of steel at speeds of up to 65km/h, all the while trying to avoid a collision!
Born and raised in a traditional family of performers, Danny started as a showman in his parent’s burlesque theatre in France from an early age. Along with his brothers, Danny started a motorcycle daredevil show. They toured the world and became internationally acclaimed for their skills. In 2012, Danny received two awards at the prestigious Festival International Du Cirque De Monte-Carlo and an official Guinness World Record!
“I am extremely excited to be returning to Joburg,” says Danny. “I have developed my appreciation for gothic and circus stories into Cirque Infernal, and I can’t wait for South African audiences to witness this breathtaking production. The show features two world firsts and thrilling jaw-droppers, as well as moments of pure poetry.”
Joburg Theatre is proud to present Cirque Infernal, direct from Europe, on the Mandela stage from September 6th to September 23rd 2018.
