Bongo Bolero

The Great Vasili

The Great Vasili's Eruption is truly spectacular and ideal for cabaret style events.

A rare chance to see the Eastern European circus phenomenon perform his own modern interpretation of the classic Dance of the Sabres. Featuring chinese pole, an illuminated cod-piece and his unique daring handstand eruption finale 5-metres above the heads of the audience.


"A brilliant combination of daring circus skills and utter nonsense, a genuinely funny show."

Julian Bracey, Cirque Bijou
