After eight years abroad, Weber Bros Circus is back in New Zealand, and will be bringing their performance to Pukekohe.
Promising an unforgettable experience, the team will be located at Pukekohe Park from Thursday 18 May, with their internationally recognised show, Adrenaline.
Andrenaline is said to showcase some of the most exhilarating and sensational acts from all over the world. The show blends stunning cirque artistry and acrobatics on the ground and in the air with hilarious slapstick comedy, mysterious illusion and extreme stunts.
The Weber family, who originated from Germany, has been in the circus business for seven generations.
Circus CEO Harry Weber, a retired hand balancer prefers to deal with all the logistical challenges involved with moving such a spectacle from town to town. He has now left his children with the job of performing acts such as the silks, motorbikes and trapeze.
Underneath the big top circus tent, the audience will be treated to FMX jumps, the splitting Globe of Death, a spherical cage in which four riders encircle each other and perform precarious tricks, and one of the world’s only surviving Human Cannonball acts. This is fired right over the heads of the audience.
The Weber Bros Circus will be in Pukekohe from Thursday 18 May, until Sunday 4 June. More information can be found on their website www.weberbroscircus.co.nz
