Roll up, roll up, the circus is in town. Circus Extreme, which features a range of daredevil stunts as well as clowns, juggling and much more, officially opened in Aberdeen last night.
The new show has been several years in the making and aims to merge modern and contemporary styles, promising to keep visitors entertained.
Acts include the Danguir Troupe, who will be performing a high wire and double wheel of death stunt, and the Extreme FMX team, which includes pilots flying through the air doing back flips and other cliff-hanger stunts.
The Extreme stunt riding team will also take on the famous Globe of Death – putting the performers under G-force similar to that of a fighter pilot.
Laura Miller will be wowing audiences with her internationally renowned aquatic aerial ring, which uses fire and water, and there will also be a cloud swinging flying trapeze and a troupe of dancers.
Henry, the Prince of Clowns, plays an integral part of the show and keeps the crowds entertained in between the other performers’ acts.
He said: “I’m the guy who is going to keep everyone entertained aged from zero to 100.
“This is the first year of touring and it’s the first time we’ve come to Scotland. It’s a brand new show.
“It’s been five years in the making and now we get to take it out on tour.”
He added that all of the performers were excited to get back to their acts after having a three-week break after the last show.
Clowning is something he’s always wanted to do and he is following in his family’s footsteps.
Henry said: “I am fifth generation. I’ve been doing this since I was a wee boy.”
Circus Extreme will be in Aberdeen until July 21.
There will be two performances a day at the Queens Links big top and tickets can be purchased at the ticket office at Queens Links.
