Photo Essay: Cirque Berzerk @ LA State Historic Park, 7/25/08

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Cirque Berzerk, the LA-based, all-volunteer, DIY fire-dancing, contortionist, aerial daredevil, burlesque cabaret, clown troupe debuted its new show "Beneath" at Los Angeles State Historic Park last weekend.

Complete with two acts, an original score, and a ten-member live band, "Beneath" practically set the big top on fire (under supervision of the Fire Marshall, of course).

Cirque Berzerk was so hot that the Thursday - Sunday run sold out by Friday night's intermission.

Lucky for those who missed it, two more shows have been added for this Friday and Saturday. Get your tickets while you can.
