A Steampunk Day Of The Dead-Themed Circus Is Coming To Manchester This Half Term

By Laura O'Neill

Strange creatures from supernatural realms will come to life.

Quirki by Cirque Surreal is coming to the Trafford Centre for a strictly limited season this October half term, in what promises to be an unforgettable show for the whole family.

From October 18, audiences will be transported from the heart of Mexico to unexplored worlds of fantasy, where strange creatures from supernatural realms will illuminate and come to life in spellbinding set-pieces of physical improbabilities.

Electrifying thrill acts, including a giant space wheel and motorcycle thunderdome, will be given an ultramodern twist by some of the greatest circus artists from around the globe, woven together with surreal comedy from Mexican clown, Chico Rico. 

Cirque Surreal leaves behind out-dated big top traditions through its dramatic internationally-renowned contemporary interpretation of ‘circus’. It has toured extensively around the Far and Middle East, and continues to evolve with unique staging, innovative sensory concepts and dynamic artistes, providing the benchmark for other modern circus productions.


Alison Niven, centre director for intu Trafford Centre, said:

“We’re always looking for new and unique experiences to delight our visitors, so are delighted to welcome Cirque Surreal in what promises to be a spectacular show that will put a smile on the whole family’s face.”
