Cirque Berzerk at Club Nokia: Steampunk Circus in Hell
Even if it's not under an actual big top and most of the audience comes in jeans (trio pictured below were an exception), the sinister acts and environment -which includes vendors hawking Steampunk garb in the theatre, show decor scattered throughout and cast members wandering around before and after the show- are a seductive combination.
Tip for those buying tickets for the final week run: try to get a balcony seat. We saw the show from both levels of the theatre and the view from the upper level is better for all the aerial performances. Plus, looking down into the hell-themed happenings just makes sense, right?
Cirque Berzerk's nearly month-long run continues this Thursday, Jan. 27 and comes to an end on Sunday, Jan. 30. Friday and Saturday has two performances (8 p.m. and 11 p.m.) and Sunday, a special afternoon performance at 4 p.m. has been added.
