Moscow State Circus rolls into Malvern
Circus performers
Acts aim to push the boundary of human physical ingenuity to its limits

The Moscow State Circus performs for the first time at Malvern Theatres from Tuesday 16 to Saturday 20 February 2010.

The show's Russian cast push the boundaries of human physical ingenuity to its limits.

The Ringmaster is the Russian folklore figure Rasputin, and his vivid dreams shape the theme of the show.

Tickets cost £12-£27 (under 16s £5 off), and are available on 01684 892277 or from the theatre website.

Circus acts

The new show, called Legenda, includes The Didyk, a double Russian swing acrobat troupe who catapult themselves across the stage, and Gregory's Girls who hover mid-air on floating silks.

There is also Doctorov's unbelievable Human Statues, whose breathtaking balancing action defy gravity, and Bortnikova's body twisting contortionists.

The Kvlividze Troupe perform on the rotating Wheel of Death, and husband and wife team The Popazovs perform their unbelievable crossbow act, which sees her shoot an apple off her husband's head, using seven crossbows simultaneously.

The circus would not be complete without clowns, and Legenda stars the award-winning Valik and Valerik, who perform slapstick and Buster Keaton-style cunning capers.
