Zippos Circus is back on tour with a new show for 2023. "Nomads" features an international cast of talented circus performers guaranteed to entertain the whole family. The tour runs until 29th October.
The show celebrates the circuses' nomadic way of life. For centuries, generations of artists have wandered from town to town to entertain and enthral people.
Headlining the show are the Temujin Troupe – special guests from the Mongolian Steppes. They perform hand voltige, skipping and aerial acts. Mongolia is one of the last places where a nomadic culture is the norm. Nearly half of the country's population lives this lifestyle.
The Nomads show also has acts returning by popular demand including the legendary motorbike Globe of Death from Brazil. There's also fast juggling, knife throwing and whip cracking from the Czech Republic, and fearless feats of daredevil aerial artistry from UK talent Jackie. Audiences always love the high-energy acrobatics from the Kenyan Timbuktu Tumblers, and a thrilling Wheel of Death act from Columbia.
An international cast incudes a breathtakingly elegant performance on the vertical pole from Moroccan-born Ibrahim. Ludvick from the Czech Republic has a fantastic Rola Rola act, there's nail-biting Swinging Trapeze from Spain plus Ukrainian dancers Diana and Sophia.
UK comedy star Whimmie Walker will get everyone laughing. And last, but by no means least, audiences adore the acrobatics, aerial acts and comedy of the inspirational Brazilian artist Paulo Dos Santos. Despite the challenge of standing at just over one metre tall, he always delivers a sensational display of skill and daring.
Join the Zippos Circus troupe of nomads as they journey through the entire length of the UK from the south of England to the north of Scotland and back in a delightful, fast-paced show.
