Imagine a circus. But on a spaceship. With jugglers, gymnasts, acrobats, tightrope walkers all inspired by a galaxy far, far away?
Well, that's a very brief intro to UFO: Circus From Another Planet, an other-world experience which is hitting Dubai for a 6 show run from February 10. The amazing show is brought to you by the Great Moscow State Circus, and puts the audience into another world and dimension. The basic premise is that an everyday man from Earth has been stolen by aliens and tries to get to grips with the fantastical creatures.
With a strong sense of space adventure, the show uses light and laser installations, sound and video equipment and a giant screen to bring their ambitious space voyage to life. The entire show cost an eye-watering 7 million Euros to put together, and has toured the world with its mind-blowing stunts, tricks and visuals, as well as an intergalactic musical score.
Running from Wednesday February 10 until Saturday February 13, Friday and Saturday have 2 shows a day, with doors opening at 12pm and 6pm, with the show beginning an hour later.
Tickets start from AED170 and are available from Platinumlist.net
