Cirque enchants audiences

Knife thrower Andrei Homanau with Darya Sharamet will entertain audiences in the Enchanted cirque production.

Produced and directed by Sebastian Cassie and presented by Showcasting, Enchanted will be performed in a 450-seater spiegeltent shipped from Belgium and constructed by renowned Belgian tent master, Rik Klessens.

The venue is the P3 parking area in Green Point, in front of the Cape Town Stadium, opposite McDonald’s.

Hosted by top South African comedienne Mel Jones and Piky Pokus from Argentina, super-star acts lined up include crossbow contortionist and silk artist Orissa Kelly, cloud swing and hoop artist Tom McKinnon, laser and bubble magic man Thomas Favaro, a disco inspired roller skating pair and a heart-stopping knife throwing duo.
