Damian Syred is bringing his all-new world-class attraction to the Cranbourne and Berwick suburbs this February
All through high school, while his classmates were busy preparing to head off to University, Damian Syred was busy heading towards his circus dreams.
After selling hot dogs and show bags during school holiday stints at circus shows visiting Perth, Damian set about teaching himself some serious money management skills via a short career at Bank West.
“I made a pretty good chunk of change as a student selling show bags,” says Syred. “So I knew there was serious money in owning a large circus. My grandparents Natalie and Peter Syred are farmers, and I was always playing circus with their animals as a kid.”
Damian achieved his dreams of becoming one of Australia’s youngest circus owners when he acquired the famous Circus Royale from the Gasser family in 2007. Fourteen years later, Damian now tours Australia with two major circus productions simultaneously.
His latest ambitious project the Chinese Circus Spectacular has been wowing audiences in the Melbourne Suburbs for the last six months with a full national tour underway.
“The Chinese Circus is unlike any other production I have ever presented. A completely new experience for young and old,” he says.
The cast, he says, consists of 18 Chinese artists who were specifically selected from the Heibei Acrobatic Troupe in Shijiazhuang, one of China’s largest and most elite acrobatic groups.
“It’s a chance to witness not only a unique acrobatic troupe but also a new cultural experience for our customers, who may have never been to a big international show before,” says Syred.
The circus is showing at Cranbourne Home behind bunnings until 9 February.
Berwick is the next stop for the Acrobatic Troupe who will raise the big top behind Zagames on Greaves Road for performances from 13 to 23 February.
