Review: Cirque Berserk, Theatre Royal, Norwich

James Goffin enjoys an action-packed evening of circus fun.
With a riot of noise and colour, stunts and tumbles, this is a busy and exciting show. The international cast run the full gamut of traditional circus skills from knife throwing to trapeze, along with a few twists of their own including the flaming limbo and an archer who releases arrows with her feet.
The Brazilian Mustache Brothers bring slapstick and light relief throughout the show, but the real centrepiece is the Globe of Death – a metal sphere containing motorcyclists roaring around at up to 60mph. It's a tremendous feat – not to be confused with the tremendous feet of Germaine Delbosq the footjuggler from France. Yes, it's that berserk.
This is a proper fun-packed family show and a great Easter holiday treat.
Cirque Berserk continues at the Theatre Royal Norwich until Saturday, April 7, with evening and matinee performances.
