Overall, Cirque Berserk! at Riverside Studios does exactly what is says on the tin, offering up a real circus experience in a theatre setting. While it doesn’t quite have the same atmosphere as the Big Top (and some acts feel a little constrained by the comparatively small performance space), it’s every bit as thrilling as its tented counterpart.
‘Does exactly what it says on the tin’: CIRQUE BERSERK – Touring ★★★
Newbury-based circus company Cirque Berserk! appears at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre as part of its 2020 tour. The company brands itself as ‘Real Circus made for Theatre’ and it does exactly what it says on the tin.
‘The perfect family trip to the theatre’: PETER PAN – Southampton ★★★★
With its colourful set, fast-paced story and funny jokes Peter Pan keeps the younger members of the audience transfixed and it was a delight to hear them chuckling and booing.
CIRQUE BERSERK – Touring
Runaway success: Suitably high tempo and jaw-dropping, Cirque Berserk bring the thrills of the circus to the theatre in a pacy, thoroughly entertaining show.
