Circus Extreme, a global touring circus, is visiting Ireland for the first time in late September and October, with Dublin dates at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham set to happen a couple of times daily between September 30 and October 16. 

Combining extreme stunts and clown performances, the circus has most recently been performing, in the case of some performers, in Monte Carlo, and promises a jam-packed performance for their varied and highly regarded shows. 

Amongst the performers are an extreme stunt riding team, riding the Globe of Death and achieving G Force similar to that of a Fighter Pilot. There will be motocross riders flying through the air in the big top, a highwire act called Ayala Troupe that’s never been seen before in Ireland, and the hoop skills of circus-world star Laura Miller, who will combine fire water and air in her aquatic ring performance. 

Other performances include jugglers, clowns, and a talent show. The show has received rave reviews across internet platforms, with many describing it as the best circus show they have seen. 

In addition to its everyday activities, the circus holds several world records between its performers, including one for the highest altitude hirewire ride on a motorbike (around 130 metres up), one for skipping three times a second for a minute on a highwire, and one for crushing cans with a monster truck. One of their highwire artists once walked between rooftops and Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
