(VNF) - Japan’s Happy Dream Circus will start performing in Hanoi from September 1st, with a special show featuring Argentinian flying motorcycle artist Dirce Lucia Reyes.

The circus will bring to Hanoi 12 international artists from Japan, Venezuela, Argentina, Columbia, Mexico, Ecuador and Chile.

This is the first time that spectators in Hanoi will get to watch Reyes. She is one of the few performers in the world to ride motorcycle inside a steel cage ball, and her flying motorcycle performance will be a highlight of the show.

“I have performed a variety of acts, and now, I have chosen the flying motorcycle act,” the artist said. “It is really adventurous, and perhaps dangerous. Even one small mistake will be a risk to the performer and co-performers. It’s the danger that stimulates me. I hope local spectators will enjoy my performance.”

Other performers include Colombia’s Alan Martinez whose tightrope walk is hugely popular. In 2007 and 2010, Martinez got the Guinness World Record for the longest skywalk.

The troupe will present a variety of acts, including acrobatics, juggling, globe of death, flying trapeze, circles of death, and Japanese drum performance.

Artists from Happy Dream Circus and the Vietnam Circus Federation, including Meritorious Artists Tien Hung and Manh Cuong, and young animal circus artist Ta Duy Lam will also perform several routines together.

Established in 2003, the Japanese troupe is known for its international performers and special repertoires.

“Happy Dream Circus and the federation worked together for six months for the show in Hanoi,” said People’s Artist Ta Duy Anh, the federation’s director.

The troupe’s stage equipment has already arrived in the capital city. The show will begin on September 1st and run to December 1st at the National Circus Federation (67 Tran Nhan Tong Street).

Happy Dream Circus will tour the nation between December 2nd, 2017, and April 1st, 2018./.
