The world-famous Great Moscow State Circus brought flavour of the future to Dubai as legendary showmen and producers, the Zapashny Brothers, brought the world-renowned circus spectacular – UFO: Circus From Another Planet – to the UAE.

The event took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 10-13 February, 2016.

“UFO: Circus From Another Planet has already been seen by more than 250,000 people in cities across Europe, and its innovative use of cutting-edge technology, unique sound and lighting effects, and the jaw-dropping talent of some of the circus world’s best-known artistes, has to be seen to be believed,” said the show’s creator and director, said Askold Zapashny.

The Great Moscow State Circus travelled with them a staggering 80 tonnes of equipment, huge lighting rigs and even its own 14-metre-wide flying saucer, suspended from the roof of the Dubai World Trade Centre.
