DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – Cirque Berzerk, the adults-only circus that opened at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on June 18, has extended its run for three additional weeks.
The avante-garde circus, originally scheduled to play until July 5, will now remain open through Sunday, July 26. At the same time that organizers have lengthened the run, they have also reduced the number of weekly performances in the 1,700-person tent from seven to five. The new schedule includes shows on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:30 p.m., Saturdays at 7 and 10 p.m. and Sundays at 8 p.m. The one-ring, animal-free circus has a storyline about a dark afterlife; performers include “living dead” burlesque dancers, aerialists, acrobats and more. L.A. State Historic Park is at 1245 N. Spring St. More information and tickets are at cirqueberzerk.com.
