ABOUT THE SHOW

link

On April 17, 1998, the first Russian Water Circus was performed under the name ‘Circus on Water’.

Since then, the creative team has continually developed new acts and shows which captivate and enthral families across the world. Over the past 19 years, the ‘Circus on Water’ team has toured Russia, Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Israel, Oman, Lithuania, UAE and China.

The show has not toured internationally since a major renovation in 2013 which piqued the interest of international producer Harry Weber and local producer Matthew Cook.

“Harry and I share a passion for circus, and when we decided that we wanted to work together, we looked for a show that would be so different to anything presented in South Africa before,” says Cook. “We wanted to push the boundaries of circus and offer something unique. When we came across ‘Circus on Water’ there was no doubt that we had to bring the show to South Africa.”

Over the last 6 months, teams in South Africa, New Zealand and Russia have been working on SPLASH! – The Water Circus, ensuring that only the most spectacular acts are seen on the South African tour.

“We have selected the best acts to tour South Africa,” states Weber, “and added some extreme acts which we know the South African audiences will love. The show along with all the technical and artistic elements which we have incorporated is what will make SPLASH! a huge success”.

FAQ

link

Q: What is a water circus?

A: Imagine a traditional circus show, with the added element of being performed in a specially designed water pool. The addition of the pool opens many opportunities to incorporate new acts never seen in a traditional circus show.

Q: But isn’t there a national drought right now?

A: You’re right, there is. That’s why we’ve taken special measures to ensure that our water is suitably sourced and recycled over the shows for maximum water conservation.

Q: What acts will I see?

A: We’ve sourced the best talent all the way from Russia, Brazil and the USA to perform their amazing feats from all circus disciplines including aerial acrobatics, death-defying stunts, and heart-warming comedy – all with a water twist. Synchronised swimmers and fountain displays add to the magic and take the concept of circus to new heights.

Q: Will I get wet?

A: Our pool is quite contained, mostly to ensure that no water is wasted. However this is a circus after all and some splashing is bound to happen.

Q: Will there be food and drink on sale at the show?

A: Yes, we have fully stocked concession stands, packed with popcorn, drinks, treats, and even some trinkets.
