THE FREE SPIRIT OF CIRCUS
Take 30 world class circus artistes add 6 sensational musicians, stir in a rainbow of incredible costumes, infuse with the Latin passion and excitement of hot Havana carnival....CIRCO CUBA LIBRE....the free spirit of circus!
For the first time in the UK direct from Cuba's Circo Nacional, Havana, comes one of the worlds great circuses. The show pulsates with the rhythms of Mambo, Salsa and Cha Cha Cha. Featuring award winning circus artistes with extraordinary displays of skills and agility, comedy, dance and music that will have you out of your seats and dancing in the aisles.
Circo Cuba Libre's 30 world renowned artists have trained for years to master their craft in Cuba's prestigious national circus school. For this reason our artistes truly live and breath circus, a breathtaking visual passion that audiences in the UK will be thrilled to watch.
After a visit to Havana, Cuba, Circo Cuba Libre's Directors, Phillip & Carol Gandey, who also produce the world renowned Chinese State Circus, recognised the promise of this raw talent and took the decision to showcase this Cuban cultural phenomenon right here in the UK. In collaboration with Cuba's National Circus School they have personally selected 30 world class circus artistes to perform in Circo Cuba Libre's first ever UK wide production in 2017.
