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.
