Ringmastered by Beni Malone, Wonderbolt’s “Cirkzilla” fills a room with a joyous, innovative blend of Newfoundland’s comic and theatrical traditions combined with the dazzling artistry of highly polished international circus artists, many of whom have performed with Cirque du Soleil. A series of incredible aerial acts including silks and straps along with aerial hoop are woven into the show. Cirkzilla also includes a handstand act, an acrobatic group chari-vari number, stilt walkers, clowns, juggling, unicyclists, aboriginal and contemporary hoop dancing and much more.
Special attention has been paid to staging, set and unique props such as LED lit hula hoops. We have created a wardrobe of outrageous costumes to highlight our funky theme and utilize state of the art sound and lighting, including powerful black lights to create an otherworldly atmosphere.
Wonderbolt has been working for the past eight years on building a tier-one circus based in St. John’s, Newfoundland that is capable of touring large towns and small cities. In 2010 we toured our acclaimed circus show “Tricksters” across the province and nationally to the Vancouver Cultural Olympiad. “Cirkzilla” will be performed at the Arts and Culture Centres in Gander July 5th and St. John’s July 7th and 8th, also at the Clarenville Community Events Centre on July 10th and Southern Shore Arena July 13th.
