Sun International’s Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom has teamed up with makers of the acclaimed Great Moscow Circus and Great Euro Circus in Australia to bring AUSSIE: The Australian Circus Spectacular to KwaZulu-Natal in March for the school holidays, as part of its nationwide tour of South Africa.

AUSSIE: The Australian Circus Spectacular is a modern and exclusively human, feel-good circus spectacular that blends stunning cirque style acrobatics, hilarious slapstick antics and extreme, high-octane stunts. This is the first time that the show has visited foreign soil, and it promises to leave audiences in awe with the cast performing unbelievable feats.

Highlights of the show include one of the world’s few surviving human cannonball acts performed by expert stuntman, Luiz Daza, who has literally flown over audiences seven days a week during the sell-out run of the Great Euro Circus in Australia.

Audiences will also marvel at the dizzying Globe of Death act which features up to five motorbike riders circling a daring dancer with Mad Max style bravado before the sphere splits in half. Thrilling freestyle motor cross riders then jump the globe beneath the circus Big Top, reaching gut-wrenching heights.

Between these breathtaking and death-defying stunts, a troupe of talented and equally daring AUSSIES will perform amazing feats of human endurance, skill and strength. From the Queen of the Silks, Kiarnna; vaudevillian performer and slapstick comedian, Val De Fun; the illusion of the salsa-dancing quick-change act; to the duo pole performance by Edison and Giselle - audiences will be mesmerized from start to finish.

AUSSIE: The Australian Circus Spectacular will be hosted from March 18 to April 3 under the Circus Big Top on the lawns of Crawford North Coast near Westbrook Beach. The school is situated on the Watson Freeway with easy access from the N2 and the M4.

Tickets range in price from R200 to R400 pp. Children receive a R50 discount, as do groups of 10 or more booking together. Booking at Computicket and in-store Computicket outlets, Shoprite, Checkers, and Checkers Hyper stores.

Visitors will be required to purchase a parking ticket at R10 per car to make use of the secure parking at the school.
