See the Moscow State Circus at the Titanic Quarter until October 14th, with its latest and greatest production to date. Superstar clowns Pavlik & Klava invite the audience to Gorky Park, this wondrous & mysterious place, a place to romance, a place to stroll and take in Moscow at sunset and a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement, in many cases, none of the which have ever been witnessed here before. As their loveable buffoons reminisce about past times they are surrounded by a multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling and roller skating performers. As the park changed in accordance with the mood of the new century, its traditions were the basis of the new concept of Park Gorkogo. These changes are reflected in the new show. It swings from the award winning Flying Trapeze of Alievs White Birds to the whirlwind roller skating of the Veslovskis. From 3 bathing beauties on the revolving ariel ring to the vertical pole jugglers of the 4 Yakovleys. From the most elegant hand balancing of Vladislav Khostik to the gorgeous & gracious ariel sail of Natalia Goncharova. Add to the mix the Kozak whip crackers & the revolving Russian swing catapulting its 10 strong troupe high into the apex of the chapito at breakneck speed and you will see an amazing awe inspiring show, created especially for its first ever European tour.
