Lion – The Weird and Magical Abracadabra Circus Show is an hour of pleasure, skills and a bit of thrilling fear led by a one-man circus crew. The performance honours the history of traditional circus with a touch of the splatter of horror films. This physical comedy is mixing magnificent mime, entertaining circus, surprising illusions and playful horror – wrapped in superb live music. Lion is a curious joyride for young people and adults alike. Welcome to our skewed circus!
