Zippos Circus 2023 'Nomads'
Scotland’s Favourite Circus is back with a brand-new 2023 show titled Nomads! celebrating the circus's nomadic way of life.
Generations of artists have wandered from town to town to entertain and enthral people. Headlining the show are the Temujin Troupe – special guests from the Mongolian Steppes. They perform hand voltige, skipping and aerial acts. Mongolia is one of the last places where a nomadic culture is the norm. Nearly half the country's population lives this lifestyle.
The 2023 show also has acts returning by popular demand including the legendary motorbike Globe of Death from Brazil. There's also fast juggling, knife throwing and whip cracking from the Czech Republic, and fearless feats of daredevil aerial artistry from the UK’s Jackie. Audiences always love the high-energy acrobatics from the Kenyan Timbuktu Tumblers, and we have a thrilling Wheel of Death act from Colombia.
Our international cast continues with a breathtakingly elegant performance on a vertical pole from Moroccan-born Ibrahim. Ludvick from the Czech Republic has a fantastic Rola Rola act, there's nail-biting Swinging Trapeze from Spain plus Ukrainian dancers Diana and Sophia.
UK comedy star Whimmie Walker will get everyone laughing. And last, but by no means least, audiences adore the acrobatics, aerial acts and comedy of the inspirational Brazilian artist Paulo Dos Santos. Despite the challenge of standing at just over one metre tall, he always delivers a sensational display of skill and daring.
Join the Zippos Circus troupe of nomads as they journey through the entire length of the UK from the south of England to the north of Scotland in a delightful, fast-paced show.
