Direct from Russia and for the first time in South Africa, Splash! – The Water Circus opens a nationwide tour at Silverstar Casino on 19 August.
Audiences from 2 – 102 will be spellbound by the refreshing Splash! – The Water Circus on its first visit to South Africa, direct from Russia.
The South African tour of Splash! – The Water Circus launches in The Globe at Silverstar Casino in Krugersdorp for a short season from Saturday 19 August – Sunday 17 September, before touring across the country until the New Year.
Splash! – The Water Circus is a circus for the modern-age, presenting a variety of all circus genres, but with a unique, visual twist. The traditional acts look completely different as they are presented in – or above – a 12-metre diameter pool of water. Accompanying this is a dazzling lighting and laser show which perfectly displays the impressive body manipulation and contortion feats amongst a series of water fountains.
Onlookers will gasp as they watch traditional aerial circus acts such as the spectacular Silks all take place above water. Added to the already impressive list of circus acts is the Brazilian Espana family performing their daredevil Wheel of Death and The Russian Swing.
In addition to all the circus acts which viewers are accustomed to seeing, the show also has a full team of synchronized swimmers who add to the magic of the performance. Their disciplined and well-trained displays are one of the reasons why the show is considered to be so unique.
This circus is totally free of animals and showcases the extreme talent and capabilities of the human body in an action-packed show presented around the custom-built pool ensuring a truly memorable audience experience.
Splash! – The Water Circus runs at The Globe at Silverstar Casino from Saturday 19 August – Sunday 17 September.
Performances are Thursdays & Fridays at 20h00, Saturdays at 11h00, 15h00 and 19h00, Sundays at 11h00 and 15h00.
