This is a NutriBullet of contemporary circus: always interesting, at best properly thrilling.

Why See Cirque Berserk!?

A circus-top brought inside the theatre for new audiences

A hair-raising entertainment spectacular, Cirque Berserk continues their intrepid tour with dates at London's Peacock Theatre. It is a whirlwind show filled to the brim with loud electro-music avidly keeping with the pace of performances ranging from knife-throwing to acrobatics, and dancers to madcap stuntmen.

Cirque Berserk, an offshoot of Zippos Circus, is in its fifth year showcasing well-known variations on traditional themes. If Cirque du Soleil is the Hazelnut Skinny Latte of circus shows, then in Cirque Berserk settle down for a familiar Builder's Tea and two sugars - bare bones circus thrills and skills reimagined for a theatre audience, without the 'conceptual art' buffer of other shows. On the 250th anniversary of the circus, it seems an apt time to visit a contemporary version of this long-favoured form of live entertainment which boasts impressive routines by an eclectic troupe of international talents.
