The Circus of Horrors, The Four Chapters from Hell Celebrating 15 bloody years
Sunday 13 February 2011
It is a staggering 15 years since it first trampled the bloody boards and has since toured relentlessly around the World achieving cult status and dragging Circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century and beyond.
Following on from the huge success of The Asylum, & The Day of the Dead show's The Circus of Horrors has had a major revamp & is back rockin' & shockin' with fangtastic new show created especially to celebrate its 15th bloody year.
The new phantasmagoria The Four Chapters from Hell will take you on a journey though all four of the Circus of Horrors incarnations, beginning in a French Asylum where the inmates are liberated and become the performers in the show.
The lunatics however turn on their liberator a slaughter him & the other wardens.
Filed with remorse however, they transport their esteemed leader & whole cavalcade of chaos to Mexico to try & revive him in the Day of the Dead celebrations.
Once revived & now with his ever expanding & sensational cast of Freaks & oddities in place the show moves into Victorian London.
It is the late 1890's and this is the age of The Freak Show, a young girl Ragen born in the Asylum, is woken from her deep sleep and runs away to join the circus before she is sacrificed by the Evil & undead Dr Haze and fed to the vampires.
But Vampires never die and the final twist to the story takes us into the future, and into 2020AH, a futuristic vision of mad max style civilization inhabited by Vampires, Zombies and the Undead. Regan now also undead seeks revenge on her evil slayer, all of course to disastrous consequences.
The show contains some of the greatest, most bizarre & beautiful Circus acts on earth. From dare devil flying trapeze to a vampiric crow woman suspended only by her hair, from whirlwind roller skaters to sword swallowers. All this plus pickled & bendy people, Voodoo Warriors, Knife throwers and an almighty cast of 26 of the wildest, weirdest but most of all greatest performers on earth.
This is without a doubt a musical masterpiece with the pulsating Devil driven Rock n Roll of Dr Haze & he Interceptors From Hell.
Imagine if Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil then you would be only half way there.
