BOSTON CIRCUS GUILD PRESENTS
ANNUAL HALLOWEEN GOREFEST: “Cirque of the Dead”
at OBERON October 20-31
Join us at OBERON in Harvard Square for our 5th year of “CIRQUE OF THE DEAD”, a naughty nightmare of circus spectacle.
It’s all fun and games at this year’s Halloween circus extravaganza… if you can survive the night, that is! Demons, witches, monsters and creepy crawly creatures will fill the evening with never-seen-before acts of aerials, acrobatics, burlesque, sideshow, and more. This adults-only Halloween horror spectacular is not for the faint of heart, but is filled with as much humor as it is with gore.
Immerse yourself in the festivities while performers suspend themselves above you and lurk all around the venue. Get up-close and personal with our bloodthirsty monstrosities, but if they happen to find themselves a victim, beware of standing too close to the splash zone. Boston comedian Wes Hazard will be your host, and crowd favorite Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band will fill the room with booty-shaking live music. Take a chance, you never know what might be waiting for you when you roll the dice at “CIRQUE OF THE DEAD”!

When not feasting on human flesh, these deadly creatures are actually members of the Boston Circus Guild, some of the best circus performers and event producers in the area. Director Karin Webb says, “Cirque of the Dead is known to tie together Halloween horror and the macabre with camp, all in the name of Modern Circus and Burlesque. This year we’re certainly delivering that again — gore, intrigue, fantasy, exceptional circus skills and aerial acts, ridiculous characters, surprise, beauty, dark mystery, and intriguing stories. I’m excited to direct the show this year, and honored to work with such an imaginative and talented cast.”
