Brainstorm: What’s On in Theatres This Week?

Cirque Beserk @ The Festival Theatre until February 12

Showcasing tantalising talent in a theatre setting, Cirque Berserk brings the circus from the marquee to the stage. With a company of over 30 acrobats, aerialist, jugglers and stuntmen, Cirque Berserk promises to put your heart in your mouth and have you on the edge of your seat, especially with the most dangerous circus act – the motorcycle ‘Globe of Death.’

And make sure and keep an eye out for the award-winning clown Tweedy!



Cirque Berserk is at the Festival theatre until February 12 before continuing the UK tour in various theatres throughout England throughout the rest of February. Tickets available here.


RENT @ The Festival Theatre February 14 to February 18


Set in East Village Bohemia, New York, RENT follows a group of young creatives on the trail of creating the one song, or film, or performance that will help them pay their rent that year. Drugs, sex and AIDS rule large and the musical offers a colourful commentary of the social problems of the time.

The 1996 Tony award winner by Jonathan Larson celebrates its 20th anniversary with a UK tour.



RENT is at the Festival Theatre from February 14 to February 18 before transferring to the Empire Theatre in Liverpool. Tickets available here.


Rambert: Ghost Dances @ Glasgow Theatre Royal February 9 to February 11


The masterpiece of Christopher Bruce’s career tells a story of victims of oppression in South America. ‘Ghost dancers’ interrupt the daily lives of ordinary people, with references to the ‘day of the dead’ to the rhythms of traditional Latin tunes.
