Cirque de Glace-Theatre Royal Glasgow

The Russian Ice Stars are a favourite of mine, with their skill on the ice and wealth of talent in dance and circus, their shows always make for a great night of entertainment.

Cirque de Glace Evolution followed the story of the beginning of time, from the earth being formed right up to a present day metropolis. Parts of the story didn't fit but it honestly didn't matter, the spetacle of the production was enough on its own.

The silks work was particularly well presented, the three female aerialists showing beautiful poise and technical accuracy. It was a shame that the contortionist lost her balance near the start but she made up for it nearer the end by repeating the position that had knocked her off initially. Indeed, it was still very impressive as she performed on top of a globe!

I will definitley be buying a ticket for the next tour and I'm looking forward to what other performance arts the cast can turn their hand to!
