December 17th – January 3rd
The first lineup of performers has been announced ahead of the award-winning Tumble Circus’ Winter Circus extravaganza which will open in Writer’s Square, Belfast this Friday.
Angelique Reckless Ross, Ali Stanger and Henrik Gard are the first three performers set to star in the 27 all human performances taking place across three weeks with everything from death-defying aerialists and mind-bending jugglers.
Angelique is a tight wire walker, trapeze artist and two-time Australian axe-throwing champion, Ali is an aerialist, acrobat and clown and Henrik is an acrobatic performer, whose focus is on weaving acrobatic movement with abstract everyday narratives.
Running from December 17 through to January 3, the infamous Jossers Big Top returns for its second year after last year’s show halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic and fans can expect this year’s “to return louder and prouder than ever before”.
Tina Segner of Tumble Circus said: “We are delighted to be back and we’ve got an amazing show lined up this year in our fully heated Tumble Circus big top tent.”
Tickets are limited this year so it’s advised to book early to experience world-class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and the unique humour that has made Tumble Circus an international award-winning modern circus company.
“The Winter Circus shows will be spectacular with an inspiring modern soundtrack” said Ken Fanning of Tumble Circus, adding: “visitors to the big top can expect modern, high skilled acts, including acrobats, aerialists and jugglers in this one hour of hammer smashing Belfast inspired circus.
Winter Circus is supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Belfast City Council, Tourism Northern Ireland and Destination CQ BID.
