More death defying acts to thrill circus fans

By V. Sivaji

The Moscow Circus continues its tour of Malaysia with a new series of performances in the Klang Valley beginning Jan 11 until Feb 17, 2019.

The troupe completed its tour of Petaling Jaya, Penang and Johor recently. This time, they will perform at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam.

As always, fans can look forward to a variety of dazzling and jaw-dropping acts under the largest Big Top the country has ever seen.

The Moscow Circus, on an eight-month tour of Malaysia, is presented by executive producers Dato’ Sri G. Radakrishnan and Yahna S.G., together with producers Kenneth Lee and Victor Pilipovich.

“The circus has been keeping fans from around the world on the edge of their seats for more than a century,” Lee says. “It is universally accepted as the best circus act.”

Master high-wire walker Valery Svezhov will stage a special act for fans outside the big top at 5.30pm tomorrow. He will attempt a death-defying stunt never before seen in Malaysia – walk the length of the high-wire 20m above ground without any safety harness.

For the first time in Malaysia, there will be an act put together by performers handpicked from the two best Russian circus troupes – the Bolshoi Circus (aka The Moscow State Circus at Vernadsky Prospekt) and the Nikulin Moscow Circus.

The Moscow Circus prides itself as an all-human act. Animals are not used in any of its performances. It features amazing human feats such as high octane roller skating, juggling that will mesmerise, death-defying high-wire walks and mind-boggling illusions.

Of course, the whole show is held together by the colourful performances of the circus’ own clown and its very own ring-mistress, the enchanting Karina Peace.
