Cirque Berzerk Takes Over L.A. Live
They're back! The circus has ditched its tent and camped out at the club downtown -- Club Nokia. Over the years we've watched Cirque Berzerk grow from a makeshift group of burners, aerialists, fire-eaters, hellraisers and steampunkers from around Los Angeles to a globetrotting tour de force with two month-long state historic park residencies in the bucket.
Now AEG and Goldenvoice have teamed with Cirque Berzerk producer David Berrent and creative directors Suzanne Bernel, Kevin Bourque and Neal Everett to bring the spectacle to the 2,300-capacity Club Nokia at L.A. Live for a 26-show run this month. The show is now in its second week so catch it while it's hot. Check out our highlights from 2008 and 2009 and you'll see why we we're coming back for more this year.
